Hurricane Ian

Detailed Description

In September 2022, Hurricane Ian made two landfalls on the west coast of Florida and South Carolina, creating a large, impacted region. As part of the NOPP Project, USGS forecasted the event as the hurricane approached landfall. Maps of maximum water levels and maximum wave heights were updated daily and were provided and distributed by the USGS debriefing team to State and local emergency planning authorities. Data collected by the NOPP Project are used to validate the models. The Project is preparing for the next hurricane season by updating our forecasting system and ingesting more accurate land cover data.
