Providing flood data and warnings in real time
Flood Beacon is an internet-connected device that broadcasts real-time flood-level data and alerts. The risk of flooding is increasing. Flood damage losses are expected to increase fourfold by 2050, costing $1 trillion globally. Unfortunately, in dealing with this growing problem those at risk have to rely on predicted flood information, rather than real-time information. Flood Beacon aims to address this failing by providing flood data and warnings in real time.
