EASOS Flood Watch helps authorities to improve the overall awareness of flood risks across the country. Flood forecasting is used to generate alerts that will enable response teams to activate evacuation plans where necessary and consider short-term flood defences. The results include increased warning times of floods, increased time to develop targeted responses, better information about impacted areas and prediction of improving or deteriorating conditions. Ultimately, by providing advanced decision support, reductions in the number of fatalities, damage to property, businesses and infrastructure can be achieved.
