Storm Tracking

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.

Is it Flooding?

There are some stormwater systems and streets that are maintained by the City of Raleigh versus the NC Department of Transportation. To determine if a street or right or way is maintained by the City, view the Interactive Street Maintenance Map.

Use the map below to see where it's flooding in Raleigh. The icons will change color when water is close to or flooding an area.
