Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown

USGS Oklahoma Water Science Center staff are assisting the Texas Water Science Center with streamflow measurements and high-water mark determinations in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. This information is vital for future flood warnings issued by the National Weather Service.
