Listen to this week’s radio feature here. It discusses a new online tool, provided by the Iowa Flood Center, that will help you keep track of flooding in your area.
In recent years repeated flooding has devastated Iowa communities. Thankfully, a new online resource is available to help Iowans prevent future flood damage.
This is the Iowa Environmental Focus.
This new online tool supplies a wealth of valuable information. It allows you to find your town, river, creek or watershed, and you can then track rainfall and stream gauges in real time.
This data provides people with up-to-date information regarding the risk of flooding in their town and surrounding areas.
To get a feel for what this resource has to offer go to Iowafloodcenter.org and follow the Iowa Flood Information System link.
And for more information, visit IowaEnvironmentalFocus.org.
