Tracking Flooding in Raleigh


Get an inside look at how our flood monitoring system works – We use gauges to track stream levels, cameras to monitor road flooding, and signs to notify resident when water reaches the road.

Storm Tracking

We track rainfall and stream levels when the forecast calls for heavy rain by monitoring different locations along Walnut Creek and Crabtree Creek. During this time, we identify flood warnings and flooding conditions. This information helps first responders with road closures and safety precautions.

    Using the Map

    Zoom in to see:

    • Locations along creeks that flood;
    • Roads that flood;
    • Water levels tracked by US Geological Survey; and,
    • Flooding monitoring cameras/signs near streams and floodprone areas.

    Please avoid areas that are flooded (indicated in red on the map). In an emergency, call 911.
