Flood event management

Definition

Flood event management  consists of a sequence of four activities:

  • detection of the likelihood of a flood forming (hydro-meteorology),

  • forecasting of future river flow conditions from the hydro-meteorological observations,

  • warning issued to the appropriate authorities and the public on the extent, severity and timing of the flood, and

  • response to the emergency by the public and the authorities.
