During the last years several extreme rainfall events have been frequently observed worldwide. Some of these events have lead to severe floods in different countries includingOman. The key issue involving flood and calamity management is the availability and operationality of technical decision support tools. Real-time flood forecasts are an essential tool for the management of flood events. The primary input for decision makers involves real-time advice taking account of: 

a) Trust worthy identification of potential flood events in the near future 
b) Detailed forecasts of flood magnitude, extends and timing for previously identified high risk events
