On July 13, flood hazard prevention basic database of Xiong’an New Area of Hebei was established, which has laid the foundation for pushing ahead middle and small rivers flooding hazard early warning and assessment work.

Hebei provincial meteorological disaster prevention center has taken into account the requirement of flood control, dissected the key spots of flood hazard prevention, and joined hands with Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology (NUIST) to complete the technical development plan and staged research work.

The research has utilized online data resources to obtain geospatial data cloud, global soil database, and data of other kinds, and analyzed the flooding risk of all tributaries of the upper stream of the Area, and judged the contribution rate of all tributaries to the flooding risk in the area.

The technical research will further elevate the capacity and level of meteorological risk management, provide decision-making basis for disaster prevention and give play to the role of meteorological disaster preparedness.
