Record flooding in the midwest


Click on the thumbnail graphic for the map of streams in flood stage across the U.S. The midwest is getting pounded (depicted by the black triangles) as is the Red River along the Minnesota/North Dakota border.

It’s the time of year when water suppliers, irrigators, emergency responders, state water agencies and water wonks start watching the streamflow gages across the US. Click here to visit the USGS Water Watch website. Be careful though, if you are a data and map junkie the visit could eat up all your extra time for a while.

If you are in Colorado click here to visit the Division of Water Resources website. They have all the USGS streamflow gages along with those operated by the division.
