The paper presents the design of a mashup application aimed at aggregating, refining and visualizing near real-time hydro-meteorological datasets. In particular, we focused on the integration of instant precipitation depths, registered either by widespread semi-professional weather stations and official ones. The potential of this approach is discussed on the basis of the DRIHM golden case, corresponding to the Genoa flash-flood on november 2011.
