Flood Safety

Forecasting and Flood Warning

UDFCD works with local governments to ensure the safety of their citizens by providing local officials with early notifications of heavy rain and flood threats in partnership with NOAA’s National Weather Service. Local officials act on these notifications according to their respective emergency plans and warn people in affected high risk areas when a flooding threat becomes more likely. The public can also access real-time rainfall, streamflow, and weather information from the ALERT System. ALERT data can also be retrieved for past events.

UDFCD’s flash flood prediction program, F2P2, operates from April through September. An archive of forecast products and flood threat notifications is available on the F2P2 website.
