The Jewish Museum in Prague reopened after shutting down a day to prepare for possible floods.

“We cleared out the basement of books and other artifacts which could be damaged in case of a flood,” museum director Leo Pavlat told JTA on Tuesday.The museum was closed Monday to prepare for floods that have killed 10 people in the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and Switzerland, according to the French news agency AFP.

Heavy rainfall has caused the floods that have deluged the Czech capital’s historic center, triggering memories of the 2002 floods that killed dozens in the region, including 17 in the Czech Republic.
