Making Flood Forecasting Easier, Faster

LCRAFloodSnapshot.jpg

Floods and tornadoes are the deadliest disasters in the world. In the United States alone, approximately 80 lives are lost every year due to flood related incidents. In addition to the loss of lives, the nation loses billions of dollars in property damage and spends billions on recovery and rebuilding efforts every year.
