Intense rainfall during the 10-day period of March 8-17, 2021 resulted in flooding, landslides, property damage, and road closures across the State of Hawaii. The islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, and Maui are known to have been affected. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) operates 71 real-time stream-gaging stations and 49 peak-streamflow gaging stations on these islands. This data release contains a summary of provisional peak-streamflow information from selected gaging stations during March 8-17, 2021, in relation to the historic record. This data release may be revised and updated as additional data are collected and analyzed.

This data release consists of a comma-delimited ascii file with attributes for 21 U.S. Geological Survey streamgage sites in Hawai‘i and Southeast Alaska selected to enable assessment of how floods might change in a future climate. Floods in Hawai‘i and Southeast Alaska have led to loss of human life; damage to agricultural crops, cultural and biological resources, infrastructure, and property; threats to public health; and conditions that are highly disruptive to residents and visitors. Floods are generated by atmospheric and terrestrial processes that may be enhanced or depressed in response to climate change. Understanding the mechanisms that generate floods can be useful for assessing how floods may change in...
