Where and when rivers flooded from Hurricane Irma in Florida (video)


I am sure you wanna know where and when rivers flooded from Hurricane Irma.

Well here the video to help you visualize it.

Here again:

In the map submitted to Reddit, the hurricane’s impact on precipitation and streamflow are shown.

The really interesting part is the right side panel – Normalized discharge (cubic feet per second) at a selection of U.S. Geological Survey gaging stations – which really shows how most of the flooding occurred well after the storm had passed.

Variation in the shape of the hydrographs (right panel) is due to stream size, storm-surge, reservoir operations, and other local conditions, which can impact the effect of precipitation on flow

Data are from USGS National Water Information SystemNOAA’s stage IV precip data and the National Hurricane Center.
