Mekong group upgrades flood forecasting tool
The Mekong River Commission has updated its monitoring and flood forecasting front page to provide better information on the Mekong conditions.
The commission’s Flood and Drought Forecast and Monitoring page has recently been revitalized since the last improvement in 2018 with a new interface, the MRC, an inter-governmental organization that works with the governments of Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam to manage water resources and development of the Mekong River, said in a Tuesday statement.
The upgraded version provides an immediate update as well as overview of the current status of the river condition, including flood forecasting, risk of flash floods, drought forecast, and rainfall distribution over the Lower Mekong River Basin.
People who live along the mainstream river like in Chiang Saen in Thailand, Vientiane in Laos, Phnom Penh in Cambodia or Tan Chau in Vietnam, can now check the river conditions on the front page of the MRC’s website.
