Hurricane season starts today, and the USGS Lower Mississippi Gulf Water Science Center is committed to collecting and providing the most up-to-date information before, during, and after the storms that are sure to come our way. When a hurricane or tropical storm is approaching, accurate and timely storm data is crucial in making good decisions regarding personal safety and property protection. We maintain an extensive network of data collection platforms (DCP) on or near the coast that gathers critical hydrologic and meteorological data, and we make this data available in near real-time on our NWISWeb web site.

The Google Maps interface provided below shows the locations of our coastal sites. clicking on the marker for a particular site will show you a link to our NWISWeb pages where you can see the current and past data for that site.
