Flood-related News and Assistance

Note: When rivers or streams are at moderate or major flood levels, boating in these conditions has greater risks and dangers than during normal conditions. For the safety of boaters and to prevent impacts to local infrastructure, boating in these conditions is not recommended. Many counties, towns and communities are actively conducting flood fighting activities, and recreational boating in areas of active flood fights can adversely impact these efforts.

River Levels (Hydrographs)

A hydrograph is a graph that shows how the height or flow of a stream is changing with time as recorded by a streamgage. Hydrographs help us understand a stream and its watershed and help to identify both flooding and low flow conditions. The hydrographs provided for the rivers listed below reflect current conditions and precipitation amounts forecasted to occur 24 or 48 hours (at the discretion of the National Weather Service) from the time the forecast hydrograph is issued.
