Flooding is a natural phenomenon which has attracted global attention as a result of its negative impact on the society. The events of flooding are unlikely to change, however, its impact on our society can be very well reduced. This paper focuses on providing early warnings to areas likely to be ravaged by flood events using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). The system involves the deployment of sensor nodes at specific flood vulnerable locations for real-time flood monitoring and detection. Flood events relating to flash flooding and run-off water or overflow are successfully monitored in real time which saves individuals plenty of time to prepare against predicted flood occurrence, saving them from the aftermath of flood disaster. The system was tested via simulation of different flood scenarios, and the outcome was efficient and accurate.
