A reliable data-based early warning system enables an early response to flood events. For example, by using weather data and self-measured water levels, information can be provided that gives the municipality and the population a head start. The Ahr flood in July 2021 showed that water masses can rise very quickly, even if rainfall amounts alone are not decisive. Identifying as many warning signs as possible in real time and incorporating them into crisis response is therefore crucial. A simplified version of the information obtained can be presented with a dashboard or automatically passed on to the public, authorities and/or rescue forces. This means that a warning could quickly result in a concrete response that can save lives in an emergency.
