Managing flash floods with localised river discharge modelling

Flash floods usually occur in a short period, often as a result of incessant rainfall saturating the ground and excess rainwater overflowing the natural or man-made river and stream embankments flooding river plains. Gathering information from media reports, the National Centre for Hydrology and Meteorology (NCMH) recorded more than 60 events of flash floods in Bhutan from 1968 to 2016.
