This resource is maintained by Regions and Local

Integrated Flood Observation and Warning System (IFLOWS): IFLOWS is an automated Flood Warning System (AFWS) consisting of 282 rain gauges and 72 stream gauges located in 40 Virginia localities. VDEM owns, operates and maintains the system. IFLOWS measures and transmits hydrological data to local emergency managers, weather forecaster, floodplain planners, and engineers to improve community flood resilience. IFLOWS is deployed in flash-flood prove areas (mostly in vulnerable western communities of the Commonwealth) and provides continuous, real-time data to enable emergency decision making.
