European Flood Awareness System (EFAS) (2004)

Description

The European Flood Awareness System (EFAS) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission is an early flood warning system complimentary to national and regional systems. It provides the national institutes and the European Commission with information on possible river flooding and flood risk to occur within the next 3 or more days.

It currently incorporates multiple weather forecasts from three different weather services, real-time weather observations from more than 5000 stations across Europe and real-time hydrological data from more than 500 stations.
