"Emergency responders in several rural communities in Queensland, Australia, received information from upstream residents about the large volume of water flowing down local water systems prior to the 2011 flood inundations. Responders used these residents' experiences and knowledge of the local environment to alert and, when necessary, evacuate populations at risk before the floods."
