Trying to figure when out if and when the waterway near you will spill out its banks?

Heavy rains fell overnight and river and stream flooding is ongoing this morning. Numerous water rescues have occurred and we continue to hear of more incidents with highs standing water.  This tool will not highlight low-lying areas with flash-flooding, but can give you a good timeline for if and when waterways near you may be cresting their banks. So like everything else these days, let me share an awesome interactive tool online that will help you figure out the flooding potential near you!

River Flood Utility

There are lots of rain gauges along the waterways that provide up to the minute information on the current river levels as well as forecast crest times. Give it a try – it is very intuitive.
