I wish this flood will be over soon without any serious damage to persons or property.

I think metro is now well protected against floods since reconstruction after 2002 floods, as Sch1 wrote. Deep stations in the city centre were originally projected as a antinuclear bunker and to be able to sustain any floods (caused by collapse of all reservoirs on the river Vltava at the same time) and in theory it still should be able to work as that. The problem in 2002 was the metro was still running while water was flooding the tunnels from construction site on C line (the shallowest). Bacause of that, many protection doors were never closed. It was complete underestimation of the floodings, till 2002 there were only smaller floodings in Prague since the year the metro was opened and there hadn't been any problem so far, so it was considered as 100% secure and even as shelter for Prague citizens in case of nuclear war.

Excellent explanations about protection against floodings after 2002 disasters.
Are there any kind of automatism to close all these doors in case of sudden flooding or is there necessity to have human intervention ?
I can imagine the replacement network see severe crowdings as hown in one of the pictures.

Those heavy doors are not automatic, there's even protection which have to be released in order to close it. Every station has a plan determining the order how all doors in the station have to be closed to make the station hermetically isolated.

On line X-B was everything with wheels :-). Mostly KT8s (great capacity, I like the way these trams were renovated not only because of the new low floor middle section), 15Ts a some 2xT3. You can see it on the pictures above and there are already some videos on YouTube.

Any links would be appreciated. I've done a search on Youtube and can't find anything other than the buses.

Now I have been in Prague. The metro is efficient, reliable and cheap.

The waggons reminds me a bit of the old green ones in Stockholm.

Two women being run over by metro, both survived
The first one was apparently hidden under the platform, two units pass by while she was on the track and nobody had noticed anything

I see that the Škoda 15T trams in Prague are now getting air conditioning. Do you get only new ones with A/C or do the older ones (which are already in service) getting equipped with them?

Also why didn't Prague get A/C with every Škoda 15T from the beginning (like Riga did)?

I think Skoda 15T doesn't have air conditioning, only one unit for testing. From where did you get the info?
