A new mapping tool by the National Weather Service now gives local residents access to information regarding water levels in their area, according to an Oct. 30 article by Barbara Miller at PennLive.

The tool, according to the story, uses "flood inundation mapping" to notify interested parties the level at which a body of water (like the Susquehanna River) needs to hit to cause flooding in a particular area.

Click here to find the inundation mapping on the National Weather Service web site. Or click here to find it on the Susquehanna River Basin Commission web site.
