Hurricane Henri Water Footprint Data Visualization
An animated map of tropical storm Henri that made landfall in Rhode Island on Sunday, August 22, 2021. The map shows the east coast of the United States from Maryland to Maine, with the storm path traveling from the Atlantic Ocean north to make land in Rhode Island. As the storm proceeds, precipitation accumulates over New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New York, with the greatest precipitation in New Jersey. As the storm passes, water levels measured at USGS stream gages increases with several locations experiencing water levels above the flood stage. USGS provides rapid response to floods by deploying extra sensors to help protect life and property.
