Floods and rising water levels are continuing to grow more extreme in our world. Recent storms have endangered the city of Houston, Texas, with a lot of flooding risks. Here in this news article you can see photos of the water rescues, emergency management, and how heavy rains caused a natural disaster.
Similarly, in New Orleans, Louisiana (a.k.a., NOLA) inundating rains tested the city’s flood response system. According to this story, citizens found that the flood monitoring alerts and information left a lot to be desired, in other words a failure.
How will these holes in City Hall communications be fixed? Perhaps with more effective, real-time flood warning and water monitoring systems like those that are deployed on the east coast of the USA in Virginia.

Water can be a precious lifeline or a dangerous, deadly weapon as this National Geographic article tells you. We need more water monitoring systems and better flow meter monitoring to avoid disasters and water issues like those happening in:
- San Francisco Bay Area, Dublin, California
- Troy, New York
- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- West Babylon, NY
- Brunswick County Public Utilities, North Carolina
You can get engaged with your town, city, state, and federal government to make better use of technologies like Industrial IoT sensors to remotely monitor water in the cloud. Help your family, community, and others you care about to live a healthier life with effective water monitoring systems.
