Effective on Monday...July 21 2014...the NWS added new flood inundation maps to the advanced hydrologic prediction service /ahps/ web Portal.
Flood inundation maps will be available for the following location:
Ocmulgee River at Macon Georgia
The inundation maps provide information on the spatial extent and depth of flood waters in the vicinity of NWS river forecast locations. Users will be able to display flood inundation maps for various levels ranging from minor flooding through the greatest flood on record. Flood inundation maps...combined with river observations and NWS forecasts...enhance the communication of flood risk and provide users additional information needed to better mitigate the impacts of flooding and build more resilient communities.
Users can access these flood inundation maps and associated geospatial data /shapefiles/ through the ahps web Portal /use lower case/:
