The present project deals with the instrumentation, software, dispatching and methodology of sophisticated local warning system against flash floods taking into account the latest knowledge about hydrodynamics mechanisms of the runoff formation. Each of dangerous factors and thein combination are taken into account: (1) the extreme rainfall usually after the long-term drought, (2) saturation of the soil, (3) water repellency of the soil, (4) gravitationally destabilized water flow in the soil.
