Title: Flood in Central and Eastern Latvia (2018-02-02)
Activation time (UTC): 2018-02-02 19:35:00 Event time (UTC): 2018-01-23 07:00:00 Event type: Flood (Ice jam flood)
Ice jam formations along Daungava and Lielupe rivers have started to increase water level since late January 2018. Today the rapid snowmelt due to high temperatures (0 - +4°) and rainfalls are dramatically increasing water levels and volume: these conditions can lead to potential floodings and ice jam movements, especially within the Lielupe catchment due to it's phisiography.
