In June/July 2009 the weather in the Czech Republic was influenced by a 12 days lasting baric low located over Mediterranean, which resulted in a sequence of many flash foods. The total damage was estimated to be about 200 mil. EUR and 15 people died. Although the flash flood is considered as hardly predictable phenomena, first efforts in flash floods forecasting have been already done [1]. Some flash floods can be predicted several tens of minutes in advance. Nowadays, new methods of… 

Forecasting of Convective Precipitation Through NWP Models and Algorithm of Storms Prediction

Predictive tools such as numerical weather prediction models (NWP models) and the algorithm of convective storms prediction, which includes a storm prediction based on the principles of mathematical statistics, probability theory and artificial intelligence methods are presented.

Fuzzy Flash Flood Forecasting and Telemetric System for the Daguitan Watershed

A fuzzy logic-driven forecasting agent along with a telemetric service for the Daguitan River, the main natural drainage of the Daguitsan Watershed, situated in the central eastern part of the Philippines, which will auto-notify local civil authorities and broadcast media for immediate announcement of an imminent flash flood.

Participatory responses to historical flash floods and their relevance for current risk reduction: a view from a post‐communist country

Participatory responses to natural disasters are currently considered to be the primary tool for disaster risk reduction. However, the implementation of this tool in post-communist Central European



The use of radar in hydrological modeling in the Czech Republic – case studies of flash floods

Abstract. Flash flood induced by severe convection is the hydrometeorological phenomenon that is very difficult to forecast. However, the implementation of radar measurements, especially radar-based
