Ha Tinh is one of the provinces most affected by natural hazards, especially flash floods. Sloping hilly terrain conditions, reduced covering density of forest and unfavorable weather conditions are potential hazards to flash floods. Flash floods potential area mapping at Huong Khe district, Ha Tinh province was carried out using Remote Sensing and GIS technologies. Factors causing flash floods was indentified and classified basing n their afecting level. Component maps of flash flood–causing factors were overlayed. Factors causing flash floods as noted by Greg Smith included: slope, soil type, forms of using land, covering density of forest. Potential areas of flash floods and the potential level of each part were indentified. The resulted maps can be used for forecasting risk regions of flash floods at the district.
