Improving Flood Early Warning Lead Time in Nepal


Flood early warning systems based on real-time monitoring of water levels leave communities with little time to respond to flood warnings. A new approach introduces probabilistic forecasting, providing information about the likelihood of flooding and resulting in an additional five hours of early warning. This increased lead time means that families gain crucial hours to get to safety and act to protect themselves, their homes and their livelihoods.
