Flood alert map for rivers and lakes of national interest

The Flood Alert map shows the current flood hazard for all lakes and rivers of national interest. Rivers of national interest are divided into separate sections. A flow monitoring station is located on each one. The prediction is based on a hydrological model and different weather models. The forecaster decides how to denote the hazard level (by a colour code) on each section of a river and on the lakes by interpreting the different results from the different meteorological and hydrological models.
