TO: Emergency management officials, news media, and other users.

Effective, Tuesday, February 24, 2015 the flood stage levels for
the Withlacoochee River at Pinetta (PINF1) will be changed to better
reflect impacts from flooding along this portion of the river.

These new flood levels are:

Action Stage             60.0 feet
Minor Flood Stage        74.0 feet
Moderate Flood Stage     80.5 feet
Major Flood Stage        84.0 feet

This location is a flood only forecast point, which means forecasts
and warnings are issued when the river is expected to rise near or
above flood stage.

These updated flood stages were a direct result of analysis of
several recent flood events by the National Weather Service in
Tallahassee and the Madison and Hamilton County Emergency
Management Agencies.

The data for this forecast point is provided through our partner,
the US Geological Survey. Without this critical data, forecasts and
warnings would not be able to be provided at this location. You can
