USGS Flood Information

Past Flood Events | 2012 | Hurricane Sandy

USGS scientists, engineers, and technicians worked along the Atlantic Coast in response to Hurricane Sandy, deploying and maintaining storm tide sensors real-time streamgages in anticipation of Sandy's arrival. The USGS, in concert with our partners, is providing scientific assessments of the challenges wrought by Sandy.

USGS Open File Report: Monitoring Storm Tide and Flooding from Hurricane Sandy Along the Atlantic Coast of the United States, October 2012: The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) deployed a temporary monitoring network of water-level and barometric pressure sensors at 224 locations along the Atlantic coast from Virginia to Maine to continuously record the timing, areal extent, and magnitude of hurricane storm tide and coastal flooding generated by Hurricane Sandy. These records were greatly supplemented by an extensive post-flood high-water mark (HWM) flagging and surveying campaign from November to December 2012 involving more than 950 HWMs. Both efforts were undertaken as part of a coordinated federal emergency response as outlined by the Stafford Act under a directed mission assignment by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
