Free Public Lecture:

The New USGS FloodPath Early Warning System 

Hydrologist Marijke van Heeswijk speaks. 

Historically, floods have been the most destructive natural hazards in the nation.  The USGS and the National Weather Service have developed an early warning system that produces online maps of tomorrow’s floods today. 

The new USGS FloodPath system maps a forecast flood three days before it happens, showing when and where floodwaters will be an the likely water depths.
