Flood Inundation Mapping in North and South Carolina
Science Center Objects
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has created flood-inundation maps for selected streamgage sites in North and South Carolina. These maps depict the approximate area that would be inundated at selected water levels, ranging from approximately top-of-bank to a selected maximum water level. The inundated areas depicted on these maps are approximate, and accuracy of the maps is a function of the accuracy of the topographic data and the hydraulic models on which the maps are based.
