To help communities prepare for and manage the effects of coastal flooding, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has brought together data from its over 200 coastal water level stations into one web tool. The Coastal Inundation Dashboard integrates real-time water level information, 48-hour forecasts of water levels, storm surge, and historic flooding information into one online tool to help decision makers understand both short-term risks such as an approaching hurricane or nor’easter, as well as longer-term risks like high tide flooding and sea level rise. NOAA’s Storm QuickLook information product will also be made available through this new tool. The latest tropical cyclone track forecast and areas under active coastal flood advisories and storm surge watches or warnings will automatically be displayed on top of the real-time flood information.
