Storm Tracking Tools Using the Map
We track rainfall and stream levels when the forecast calls for heavy rain. This includes monitoring different locations along Walnut Creek and Crabtree Creek. We identify flooding conditions during a storm. This helps first responders close roads. And put other safety precautions in place, too.
Using the Map
Please avoid flooded areas (red circles on the map). In an emergency, call 911. You'll see green circles when the area is not flooding.
You can also zoom in to see multiple layers. Or select the 'layer' icon on the top right of the map to turn on layers, like rain estimates.
Zoom in to see:
- Where it's raining during a storm (You can click on the link in rain/stream gauge locations to see rain estimates);
- Locations along creeks that flood;
- Roads that flood;
- Water levels tracked by US Geological Survey - including four fire stations in Raleigh; and,
- Cameras/signs that monitor flooding near streams and floodprone areas.
