Detailed Description

USGS Scientists Dan Kroes and Charlie Demas set out into the Atchafalaya Basin to inspect flooding conditions in the Basin.

In late 2015/early 2016 unusually large rainfall in the Upper Mississippi River Valley led to significant flooding in Arkansas, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. USGS crews responded to the flooding by collecting streamflow and water quality information and providing it to emergency responders.
