MENLO PARK, Calif. — The U.S. Geological Survey and National Weather Service have developed the new FloodPath mapping system which allows scientists to produce maps of tomorrow's floods today – up to 3 days in advance of rising floodwaters. These new maps, combining topography and weather forecasts, detail imminent floods’ location, depth, and duration. The FloodPath mapping system allows emergency responders, property owners and business, among others, to better prevent human and economic damage and loss. Come join the lecture to hear about this incredible new technology.
