Floods and Droughts
Flood Early Warning
We are developing flood early warning systems to help first responders, water managers, and citizens
Our hurricane response begins with storm surge and streamflow monitoring and continues through high-water mark collection
Our inundation mapping projects provide critical data on potential flooding impacts
We monitor peak flows at real-time monitoring stations and crest-stage gages
Oklahoma and Texas have experienced both extreme floods and extreme droughts in the recent past. The USGS Oklahoma-Texas Water Science Center provides data critical for drought and flood mitigation.
