Tigers and lions were among the animals evacuated from Prague's zoo overnight as flooding threatened the historic Czech capital.Storms buffeting central Europe have caused at least six fatalities and driven thousands from their homes. The flooding disrupted river traffic from the Rhine to the Danube and forced the Czech authorities to open dams in the south of the country, releasing huge volumes of water that surged toward Prague. The River Vltava, which flows through the capital, was expected to peak on Tuesday morning, causing the second floods in the city in 11 years.
