Case Studies

Early flood detection and warning system in Argentina developed with Libelium sensors technology.

La Emilia is a small village in the North of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its location next to the “Arroyo del Medio” river has been subject to several flood alerts throughout its history. In 1966, La Emilia was hit by a massive flood after a period of heavy rain leaving more than 400 liters per squared meter and causing two deaths. Local authorities suggested the construction of retaining dikes in order to avoid future flooding.

Early warning system to prevent floods and allow disaster management in Colombian rivers.

On May 18th 2015, the Colombian village of Salgar was devastated by a landslide. The La Liboriana river flood caused 83 deaths and left devastation and destruction on the communities all over the area. After this event, the National Unit for Disaster Risk Management – Unidad Nacional para la Gestión de Riesgos de Desastres (UNGRD) in Spanish – designed a plan to monitor and compile information on the La Liboriana, La Clara and Barroso rivers to prevent tragedies like the Salgar landslide.
