Few decades ago it was unrealistic to believe that someday people will be able to cope with anynatural disaster. These days we managed to develop different kind of systems that allowed us theopportunity to face some kinds of natural disasters.We will present to you a system we created thathelps us to observe two rivers in Greece and moreover to predict a possible flood in the area. Asyou can easily understand this system will help usto save lives and mitigate the result of the distruction.
