  • Flood Forecasting and Warning Services in general

    An exact and early Flood Forecasting allows accordant early warning of persons concerned as much as the establishment of necessary measures (see Flood Protection, Evacuation and Rescue Plans). Therefore, it can make an important contribution to avoid damage. Flood Forecasting is in most cases based on extensive numerical modelling which is created with hydrological and hydraulic models of ...

  • Living with the floods, not against them

    “Yes, we are illiterate sir, but we are engineers as far as our experience with water and rivers is concerned”, says Phushi Mahato, a villager in the Gosi Kandak floodplains in North-Bihar in India. As an outcome of water resource management that failed to understand the role of fluvial regimes in delta, Phushi and his fellow village members have now become vulnerable to floods ...

  • The Malaysian flood hazard management program

    Flooding is the most severe hazard in Malaysia, a country experiencing a wet equatorial climate with heavy seasonal monsoon rains. In the past, nature took care of itself as vast expanses of forests and wetlands soaked up rainfall excess and delayed the flow of water into rivers. Indigenous peoples are also well adapted to seasonal floods, as their lifestyles and livelihood on floodplains have ...

  • An adaptive predictive approach for river level forecasting

    Efficient flood management requires accurate real-time forecasts to allow early warnings, real-time control of hydraulics structures, or other actions. Commercially available computing tools typically use hydraulic models derived from the numerical approximation of Saint-Venant equations. These tools need powerful computers, accurate knowledge of the riverbed topography, and skilled operators ...

  • Why disaster warning and development go hand in hand

    To engage people in early action we must understand their experience, behaviour and constraints, says disaster policy expert Andrew Collins. Disaster predictions have significant uncertainty that tends to undermine efforts to act on early warnings. In Bangladesh, for example, where there ...

  • Modelling the Thatcham Flood - Case Study

    Overview On 20th July 2007, an unusual storm swept west across England along the approximate line of the M4 motorway. Thatcham, a town in Berkshire, was one of the worst affected. Many towns in England flooded that month from the Humber to Tewksbury. In fact there were 200 major floods worldwide in 2007 affecting 180 million people. Some of these floods were caused by rainfalls much more ...

  • A flood forecasting neural network model with genetic algorithm

    It will be useful to attain a quick and accurate flood forecasting, particularly in a flood-prone region. The accomplishment of this objective can have far reaching significance by extending the lead time for issuing disaster warnings and furnishing ample time for citizens in vulnerable areas to take appropriate action, such as evacuation. In this paper, a novel hybrid model based on recent ...

  • Flood cleanup – watch out for mold and poor IAQ

    Clean up with air quality in mind Flooding can strike anywhere around waterways, especially in the spring, when lakes and rivers swell up with melt-water. This year, major floods have already hit areas in North and South America and other parts of the world, including Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, California, Chile, Peru, Indonesia and Russia, just to name a few. When water ...

  • The Netherlands lowers its dikes to make room for the rivers

    The Netherlands is located in the delta of three major European rivers. Water related issues such as flooding are always a risk. After a serious warning in 1995, when 250,000 people had to be evacuated due to a dangerously high water level, the national program ‘Room for the River’ came about. A safer river area as well as an attractive living environment. With these objectives in ...
