Summary

Digital flood-inundation maps for an approximate 4-mile (mi) reach of Nimishillen Creek near North Industry, Ohio were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District and the Stark County Commissioners. The flood-inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science Web site at http://water.usgs.gov/osw/flood_inundation/, depict estimates of the areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to selected water levels (stages) at the USGS streamgage, Nimishillen Creek at North Industry (03118500). Near-real-time stages at these streamgages can be obtained on the internet from the USGS National Water Information System at http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ [...]

Purpose

The initial target audience is the state and local agencies that must make emergency operational decisions during flooding events. However, since the graphics are easy to view, anyone with an interest during these events can make use of the maps, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), state and local emergency managers, the media, and the general public.
