Weather Alert Emilia-Romagna (2017)

Description

A new regional Web Portal, “Weather Alert Emilia-Romagna”, has been developed in parallel to the development and refinement of real-time hydro-meteorological monitoring technologies and a widespread risk communication programme put in place by the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy. “Weather Alert Emilia-Romagna" has been designed to make the transmission and uptake of warning information for hydro-meteorological risk much more timely and effective and it is hoped that it will prove to be a valuable tool to increase resilience in this region. This web portal became ‘live’ at the beginning of May 2017, is operational 24 hours-a-day and 365 days-a-year. The website has been built to be usable from mobile devices and contains all relevant information on the risk and alerts including: alerts and bulletins, real-time updates on the evolution of events, weather forecasts and data, civil protection plans, risk maps, news alerts published by mayors to inform citizens, post-event reports and specific guidelines.
