The Flood Alert map shows the current flood hazard for all lakes and rivers of national interest. Rivers of national interest are divided into separate sections. A flow monitoring station is located on each one. The prediction is based on a hydrological model and different weather models. The forecaster decides how to denote the hazard level (by a colour code) on each section of a river and on the lakes by interpreting the different results from the different meteorological and hydrological models.
