...Pennsylvania Flood Awareness Week Continues...
This week has been declared Pennsylvania`s Flood Awareness Week
by the National Weather Service office`s serving Pennsylvania.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton will feature information
about a different flood topic each day this 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
United States. 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.  The NWS and the National
Ocean Service are collaborating with the USGS, USACE, FEMA, and
other partners to develop these inundation maps for flooding.
See: http://weather.gov/bgm/floodinundation

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. See: 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.
See http://water.weather.gov

Flood Safety Awareness Website:
On this page, you will find information on what to do before,
during and after a flood. See www.floodsafety.noaa.gov

Staying aware of an evolving weather situation can help you
prepare when flooding or other weather hazards impact your area.
