River Tracking Resources

June 7th, 2013 at 8:25 pm by under Weather

With 2-4 inches of rain on the way, flooding is a concern this weekend in western Massachusetts.  There are a couple of excellent websites where you can track the current and forecast levels of rivers here in western Massachusetts.

1.  The Northeast River Forecast Center:  This map shows current and forecast levels for many of our major rivers in western Massachusetts.
2.  US Army Corps of Engineers:  Shows current and past level and flow of several western Massachusetts rivers.  This website also shows levels of flood control reservoirs. 

Keep in mind that even after it stops raining, rivers will continue to rise.  In fact, some will continue to rise into Sunday.  Rivers and streams will be running dangerously high and fast this weekend.
