- In any water system, when there is an increased quantity of water, it causes flooding, like a river or lake overflowing. Many occasions are responsible for flooding such as heavy rainfall or dam fractures. In case of flooding or dam fractures, it rapidly releases a huge quantity of water and floods the river banks and surrounding areas. It causes loss of life and property also. Flood monitoring and alerting systems are helpful for monitoring and to reduce the losses faced by the society. On occasion a dam fractures, abruptly releasing a massive quantity of water. The outcome is that a number of the water travels into soil, and ‘flooding’ the region. Rivers involve river banks, in a station. Aside from lack of products and house and office property, streets infrastructure flood water consists of bacteria and sewage flow of waste sites and chemical spillage which leads to a variety of diseases afterwards. Flood predictions need information like: The speed of change in river stage on a real time basis, which may help indicate the seriousness and immediacy of this threat. In this system we make use of a Arduino Mega with water sensors, rain sensors to predict flood and alert respective authorities and sound an instant alarm in nearby villages to instantly transmit information about possible floods using IOT. These sensors provide information over the IOT using Arduino Mega. On detection of conditions of flooding the system predicts the amount of time it would take to flood in a particular area and alerts the villages/areas that could be affected by it. [5]
