The development and maintenance of the WaterAlert system is supported by USGS and its data-collection partners, including numerous federal, state, and local agencies. Notifications will be based on the data received at these site-dependent intervals.  Sign up here:

Weather Terms:

Hydrologic Outlook – Used to heighten awareness of possible flooding in the next several days. The flooding could be the result of snow melt, heavy rain, ice jams, or a combination ofthese. If you have property in a flood prone area you might want to start preparing!

Flood Watch – Flooding is possible. It’s time to prepare!

Flood Warning – Flooding is imminent or occurring. It’s time to act!

Flooding can be caused by heavy rain, rapid snow melt, ice jams, and dam failure.  It only takes 6 inches of fast-moving water to knock you off your feet.  It only takes 2 feet of rushing water to carry away most vehicles.  On average, floods kill more people in the U.S. each year than lightning or tornadoes.
