NC Flood Inundation Mapping and Alert Network (FIMAN)
FIMAN’S Mission: To provide rain and stage gauge data, flood inundation maps, flooding impacts and alerts in real-time to support risk-based decisions regarding flooding.
This web site provides real-time data on stream elevation, rainfall and weather parameters from over 550 gauges across North Carolina. Some sites may be rain or stage gauges only while some may have weather data available. Many of these gauges are managed by the Division of Emergency Management (NCDEM) while some are operated by local government agencies and private organizations. Additionally, gauges from the U.S. Geological Survey are included in this network.
This web site also contains inundation maps at selected sites across the state as well as along entire river basins. Flooding risk information is provided for areas with inundation maps. For each incremental rise in flood waters buildings, roads, and infrastructure that would be impacted are identified. Information on water depth in each building affected along with estimated damage costs are displayed.
