Remote sensing based tech being introduced in Pakistan to forecast floods

This project will help build the capacity of Pakistan Meteorological Department and other agencies responsible for flood forecasting, early warning and management at the national, provincial and district levels.
This could be a milestone in achieving the better capacity to mitigate extreme floods not only in areas like Pakistan but even in Africa where flooding is a constant phenomenon. The article is available at:http://www.thenews.com.pk/NewsDetail.aspx?ID=20594&title=High-tech-sys-to-forecast-floods
