Can    报汛 be translated as flood warning?

(Context:  As in the sentence  提供汛期水情信息的国际报汛任务)

Thanks!

thanks

Thanks a lot, rovi and hly

Both your responses are pretty close in their meaning, though flood warning has an air of immediacy to it.

Thanks for your views. This was another of those phrases - i knew what 汛was, as in 汛 期, and 报 as in 报道,but wasn't sure entirely  sure what the two together would mean。

提供汛期水情信息的国际报汛任务

Since 报汛 is to 提供汛期水情信息, "warning" might be a bit too strong.
