Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Binghamton NY
800 AM EDT Thu Mar 30 2017

The National Weather Service has declared March 27th through March
31st as Flood Safety Awareness Week in Pennsylvania.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton will feature information
about a different flood topic each day during the awareness week.

Today`s topic: National Weather Service Water Resources

The NWS homepage, www.weather.gov, provides up to date weather
and water Advisory, Watch, and Warning information for the U.S.
and its territories.  However, the NWS provides many additional
resources to help emergency managers, public officials and private
citizens make water decisions.

Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS)
AHPS provides a suite of river and flood forecasts and water
information to protect life and property, and helps ensure the
nation`s economic well-being. The main website to find this
information is located at: https://water.weather.gov

Flood inundation mapping:
The ability to look into the future to see how many city blocks and
roads might be flooded is becoming clearer with the development of
flood inundation mapping.  NOAA`s NWS and National Ocean Service
are collaborating with the USGS, USACE, FEMA, and other partners
to develop these inundation maps for flooding.

Weather Prediction Center (WPC) Precipitation Forecasts:
WPC provides precipitation forecasts for the entire U.S., including
Puerto Rico. WPC also issues excessive rainfall forecasts,
short-range discussions on heavy rainfall events, and snowfall and
freezing rain probabilities at: www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov

NWS River Forecast Centers (RFC):
The National Weather Service has a network of thirteen River
Forecast Centers across the United States. These RFC locations
collect, process, and provide water resource and river forecasts
and information for major river basins across the country.

Flood Safety Awareness Website:

during and after a flood. www.floodsafety.noaa.gov
