NOAA’s National Weather Service provides weather, water, and climate data, forecasts and warnings for the protection of life and property and enhancement of the national economy. Over the years, several Cooperating Technical Partners have partnered with the NWS, USGS and the USACE to produce Flood Forecast Inundation Maps, to be used in conjunction with the National Weather Service’s River Flood Forecast and Warning to help communicate flood risk and hazard information.
Overview - For this webinar, NOAA NWS will provide an overview of the NOAA Partnered Federal Guidelines for Flood Inundation Mapping, describe key components of these Flood Forecast Inundation Maps, and the value of this mapping capability before, during, and after a flood.
Rock River, WI Case Study - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (a Cooperating Technical Partner) will describe in more detail their role in collaborating with NWS, USACE, and USGS to produce Flood Forecast Inundation Maps for the Rock River. With these Flood Forecast Inundation Maps, NOAA’s NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service serves as a one stop source for flood forecasts and warnings for the Rock River communities.
