Flood Report: 2016 Jan Eel and Van Duzen Rivers!

Originally posted here.

Yesterday and today were flood events on the Van Duzen and Eel Rivers. I will post more later as I am preparing for the beginning of the Spring Term which begins tomorrow.

First I post the USGS hydrographs from NOAA that I obtained at the water weather dot gov website here.

Van Duzen River


Observations: Jan. 17, 2016 (16:20-17:15)


Here is the Van Duzen River (at Bridgeville) hydrograph collected this afternoon (BRGC1). I made photo and video observations downstream of this gage and I post photos and videos below.


Here is a legend and some of the historic records at the BRGC1 gage.


Here is a map showing the gage location (approximate).


Here are the observations downloaded from the NOAA website, showing the USGS water surface elevations (river stage). I highlighted the time of the peak discharge and the times during which I collected these photos and videos.


    Here are some photos.
