Ever wondered when there is a flood in Singapore next?
Well, something that is not too well known (especially given the 5000 downloads on the Google Play store only) is an app from Singapore's national water agency, the PUB called, "MyWaters".
It's a free application that provides useful and timely information on water-related topics and allows you to check if there is a flood in Singapore. You can also:
- View the situation at selected flood prone areas. You can do a search for cameras located at their area of interest via Current Location, Postal Code or Street Name;
- You can look at CCTV cameras and road conditions;
- You can access the latest on flash flood situations by checking water level information in key drain and canals;
- You can also subscribe to push notifications from multiple water level sensors across the island.
National water agency, PUB is a statutory board under the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. It is the water agency that manages Singapore’s water supply, water catchment and used water in an integrated way. For more information, visit www.pub.gov.sg
