A Study of an SMS-Based Flood Warning System for Flood Risk Areas in Laos

Saysoth Keoduangsine, Robert Goodwin, and Paul Gardner-Stephen
Abstract—Flooding is a regular major disaster in Laos and results in significant damage to the national socio-economic development and loss of life. The current flood warning systems of the country are received in real-time data from the hydrological stations to the data centres for flood forecasting and warnings. Most flood alerts are sent to the public by mass media and bulletins, yet people in flood risk areas remain affected by annual floods. The feasible study of using SMS message as a real-time flood warning system was investigated by collecting the primary data from the two groups of respondents, people in the flood risk areas and the flooding experts who work for the current flood warning systems in Laos. This paper presents the findings, concludes with a summary and suggests future work for the study.

Index Terms—Mekong river basin, Laos, SMS-based flood warning system.
