Flooding is a great treat towards mankind as it is also considered one of the most devastating natural disasters in the world. Flooding is not any abnormal scenario worldwide, since flooding results in great damages to agriculture land, residential area and even cities with high cost in lives and towards the economy of the country. The government has to spend tons of money in flood mitigation plans in afford to help the victims and also to reduce the number in the long run. Most of the flood mitigating plans has high cost and only can be implemented base on priority. Baring the cost and safety measures, this paper highlights the Flood Observatory System (FOS) as a warning and alert system to efficiently monitor the critical flood prone areas in real time basis. FOS can be deployed in flood prone areas in afford to create a well-used standard for remote flood observation systems. The ability to receive real time information on flood level empowers both government and private organizations to react to imminent danger in an effective manner. With the real time flood information, allows public safety organizations and other emergency managers to effectively plan their resource deployment within the limited time of alert. Warning as flood rises could be used to save life’s and properties in many ways can help such organization and government to spend sufficient amount of money in restoration process. The simple and practicality of a system should be useful in all means towards mankind.
