Google develops flood warning system

FloodHubDigital giant Google has developed a flood forecasting system that can predict floods a week before they occur.

Named "Flood Hub", the artificial intelligence platform relies on data provided by weather forecasts and satellite imagery. Using this information, the solution is able to determine river water levels and thus identify the areas that would be most at risk of flooding.

The platform was launched in 2018 in India before being extended to Bangladesh. Today, Flood Hub is available free of charge via the Google Maps app and website in 80 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia, Central and Latin America.
