Flooding and Hurricanes - Water Level Monitoring with IoT Sensors

Posted by Edward Pultar on

Why do you, your teams, your organization, and your communities need water monitoring systems?

Water levels are going up - Hurricane season is here in the states.

Flooding risks are increasing as Hurricane Florence is causing evacuations on the east coast. It's been called the storm of a lifetime with over 20 inches of rain and sustained winds over 130mph. 

According to the Weather Channel and USA Today, the hurricane will cause catastrophic flooding

This hurricane will likely land on Friday. Are we prepared for it?

How do government agencies implement early warning systems like those that monitor flooding and detect dangerous water levels?

Smart Cities on the east coast of the states have deployed Industrial IoT sensor devices to warn citizens and communities.

In Virginia, cities like Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Newport News, and other communities in the Hampton Roads region around Chesapeake Bay, have been installing flood warning systems for years.

These flood warning systems are deployed in various locations like:

  • Bridges
  • Marinas
  • Other Water Bodies
  • Anywhere Water Levels Need To Be Monitored

We're grateful that our software has human impacts - helping save people save lives, time, money, property, and other things affected by high water levels and flooding.

A big thanks goes out to all of the communities that are using today's IoT sensor technologies to help us live better lives. And thanks to the folks sharing their monitoring successes and spreading the word to other government agencies. This is how we help make the world a better place for you and your families. Thank you for your support and stay safe out there!
