USGS Flood Information

“The USGS collects flood data and conducts targeted flood science to help Federal, State, and local agencies, decision makers, and the public before, during, and after a flood. Our efforts provide situational awareness, drive predictive models, inform infrastructure design and operation, undergird floodplain mapping, assist flood constituent/load quantification, and facilitate flood impact assessments.”

“The USGS offers multiple products that allow our stakeholders and the public to be notified of high-flow conditions and USGS flood response activities:
• WaterWatch: Access current flood and high-flow conditions (image below), along with other streamflow information
• Regional and Local Flood Alerts: View current and historical alerts of flooding and response activities; subscribe to RSS feeds
• WaterAlert: The WaterAlert service sends e-mail or text (SMS) messages to you when certain parameters (including streamflow and gage height/stage) exceed user-definable thresholds, as measured by a USGS real-time data-collection station. Use the WaterAlert map to create your custom notifications.
• WaterNow: When you email or text the WaterNow service with USGS gage or site number, WaterNow will reply with the most recent observation.”
