Govt. teams up with Google for flood warning
Union Water Resources Ministry has teamed up with Google to generate flood warnings.
A Google Maps user will be able to see what regions are likely to see water logging first and if their neighbourhood is under threat.
Currently, the Central Water Commission (CWC) warns of floods based on the rising water levels in reservoirs and if these are nearing a dam’s ‘danger marks.’
An experimental version of the exercise will be offered “free of cost” as part of the company’s “Corporate Social Responsibility.”
