To be prepared for a flooding crisis the city counsel of Prague prepared a crisis plan. In such a plan possible crisis events and corresponding actions of rescue workers have been described. The extensive text based crisis plan cannot be used to inform and train civilians in the crisis area and first responders. Storyboards and scripts offer a possible visualization of the crisis plan. In the paper the use of storyboards in case of a flooding crisis have been described. Some experiments have been performed and the results are presented.

Key words:
crisis plan
