This invention will hep to avert flood hazards.

An electronic flood level caution system that detects real time flood level on roads and warns road users of rising flood above a determined permissible flood depth threshold (60 cm). The device allows for early detection of rising water levels on the road to avert flood hazard. The recent ensemble of periodic global projections based on climate change associated with warmer climate, predicts a high increase in the risk of floods which necessitated the development of this novel device. The device operates on the principles of water level detector using the switching properties of transistors to activate a warning alarm.
