USGS Flood Information

Current Flood Events | Hurricane Sandy | Streamgages

Prior to the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, USGS technicians deployed XX non-transmitting storm tide sensors and XX real-time rapid deployment streamgages (RDGs) along the Northeast coast.

USGS Storm tide and Rapid deployment streamgages used during Hurricane Sandy

Storm tide sensors are non-transmitting submersible devices which continuously record water level during the event which can be downloaded later to determine the extent of the storm tide inundation and the depth of water over the land surface. Barometric pressure sensor data are used to adjust the recorded water level data and may also be used by meteorologists to document weather conditions.

For an overview of the Storm Surge processes, please visit our NWS partners here.

(Click here to jump to a list of definitions below)

Rapid deployment streamgages perform a function similar to the storm tide sensors in that they record the water level data, but they also transmit those data on a real time basis. Some RDGs also record and transmit real time meteorological data. Information from these instruments is being retrieved and posted for display on the storm tracker found on the USGS Hurricane Sandy web page.

Storm Tide
Temporary instrument that records storm-tide data (abnormal rise in sea level accompanying hurricanes).Click here for more info from NWS.
Rapid deployment streamgages
Temporary streamgages setup to provide short-term water-level data for critical areas lacking streamgages during an event.
Wave height
Temporary instrument that records wave height (recording intervals of 2 secs. or less).
Barometric pressure

High Water Marks
Physical or natural evidence of previous water levels. Click here for more info.

Long-term gaging sites

Streamgages
Location on a watercourse where systematic observations of stage and/or flow are measured. For more information about streamgages, see NWIS Web Interface.
Tide gages
Gages that record long-term tidal water level.
Tidal crest gages
Gages that record maximum tide for observation period (months or years).
