Title: EFAS flood warnings and aid activations
This data set contains the locations of active EFAS flood warnings and ERCC (Emergency Response Coordination Centre) activations.
In detail, this dataset contains four different types of locations: 1) region or river basin where an EFAS Formal Flood Notification has been sent to. 2) region or river basin where an EFAS Informal Flood Notification has been sent to. 3) region or river basin where an EFAS Flash Flood Notification has been sent to. 4) International aid has been requested to the ERCC due to a significant flood event.
This information is produced by the operational EFAS (www.efas.eu) in order to communicate to the EFAS partners the location at which there is a high probability of flooding forecasted.
The update frequency of this data set is twice a day (00:00 and 12:00 UTC); and the spatial coverage is the extended geographic Europe.
