Flood Forecasting Initiatives:

  • Under the flood forecasting initiatives, Google has sent out numerous public alerts to people in flood-impacted regions of India.
  • These alerts provide updates and critical information to inform the users on their safety and the safety of their family and friends.
  • The notifications are provided in English, Hindi and Bengali based on the device language and locations of users.
  • The initiative enables the users with Android Smartphones with location service to receive the alerts and notification on the real-time water level measurements.
  • This initiative also allows the users to enter queries on flood-affected areas and access information on the current situations of the region.
  • This also provides visual overviews of the information like rising and fall in water level in the next day with a description of the current situation with specific guidance.
  • A colour-coded map of the flooded regions which provides a larger and detailed view in Google maps with zoom facility to get a better understanding of the water levels.
