Use of forecasts and algorithms to generate alerts in real time. Creation of algorithms to transform the rain forecast into alerts

Main features

  • Development of algorithms to transform rainfall forecasts into local warnings for different storm durations

  • Flash flood warnings across the drainage newtorks based on the basin aggregate rainfall concept.

  • Real-time warning activation based on local or regional thresholds

  • Use of exposure and local vulnerability information to generate local warnings in priority locations or areas
