Short summary
This is the first scientific report of the flash flood of 20 August 2018 on “Raganello Gorge” (Southern Italy), an extreme event with rather specific features (very localized in space and time), which unfortunately caused 10 victims. The meteo-hydrological dynamics were reasonably reconstructed and the forecasting skills were evaluated using an innovative modelling approach, including fully coupled atmospheric-hydrological modelling and improved representation of Sea Surface Temperature.
This is the first scientific report of the flash flood of 20 August 2018 on “Raganello...
