Flash Floods. Is It Possible to Protect against Torrential Rain Flooding?

Technical measures in the form of dams or walls would be incommensurately high, inconvenient, expensive and often unfeasible. The construction of mobile protection such as the one ready for instance in Prague is time-consuming and torrential floods do not give us this time. Elements of such mobile protection systems are not usable on mountain streams due to how small they are and they can thus be burst by trees and other heavy objects floating in the fast current.
