Maharashtra: Flood Warning System for Mumbai launched by Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan, CM Uddhav Thackeray

@CMOMaharashtra
Mumbai is expected to be safer in this monsoon season as a new protection cover is given to the financial capital of the country. State of the Art Integrated Flood Warning System - Iflows was inaugurated by Union Minister for Earth Sciences, Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray this afternoon. This added protection is expected to reduce the intensity of the flooding faced by the Mumbaikars every year.

The Ministry of Earth Sciences has given a special protective cover for Mumbaikars considering the request of Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai. The MCGM had approached the Ministry of Earth Sciences to develop the warning system which can prevent or at least mitigate flooding in the city.The IFLOWS-Mumbai, is developed using the ministry’s in-house expertise and is expected to enhance Mumbai’s resilience by providing early warning for flooding specially during high rainfall events and cyclones. I-FLOWS comprises seven modules, namely Data Assimilation, Flood, Inundation, Vulnerability, Risk, Dissemination Module and Decision Support System.

The system has provisions to capture the urban drainage within the city and predict the areas of flooding, which will be incorporated in the final system. This system has been pressed into the service exactly when it was needed as very heavy rain is predicted within two days in Mumbai.
