September 2013 Flood Peaks

[Fraug 4/28/2014] September 2013 Peak Flow Estimates

We are putting together a webmap tool to view peak flow estimates from the floods of last September.  Thought you all might be interested in this.  Your comments are always welcome.  This is a work in progress.

URL is http://udfcd.maps.arcgis.com/apps/OnePane/basicviewer/index.html?appid=326e38499aa6453bb4ccc56f7facbf6c

WDT HydroWatch Update

Inaugural FRAUG Report 4/22/2014

We made a couple of minor changes to this custom radar website:

  1. The radar image default setting is now  50% transparent.  To change this  use the [Map Controls] button and slider.
    WDT Transparency
  2. The Storm Attributes default setting is now ON.  To change this use the [Current] button, select “Severe” and uncheck the Storm Attributes box. The directional pulse shows where storms are expected to move over the next hour.  If you do not see a pulse, try turning the Storm Attributes off, then on again.

The images above are current so I had to find some locations outside the District to demonstrate these features.

The website link can be found at http://alert5.udfcd.org.  We recommend that you bookmark this URL as a good starting point to get to all the webpages supported by UDFCD’s F2P2.

Let me know if you would like training concerning this site.  Please use my email address kstewart@udfcd.org.  If you have comments that you want the entire list of subscribers to read, just send a reply to this email.

This is the first official use of this new service.  There may be a few bugs to work out.
