ABSTRACT

Mapping a Flood...Before it Happens   [open pdf - 420KB]

"Maps - The only maps generally available today are maps used for planning. They are maps of theoretical floods, not maps of flooding forecast for an approaching storm. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Weather Service (NWS) have developed a way to bring flood forecasting and flood mapping together, producing flood maps for tomorrow's flood today…and getting them on the Internet in time for those in harm's way to react."
