As New Hampshire (USA) dries out from some of the worst flooding we’ve ever seen in this area we look to the world to see how others handle these disasters.
In Ireland, proper evacuation procedures and flood “relief” are essential during a crisis
Thanks again to Dee for sending this on to me.

Wondering how high the water really was when I came over the temporary bridge on the Pemigewasset into Plymouth this morning I went straight to the folks who track these things.
The U.S. Geological Survey tracks river and stream data for many points on many streams in the US and they’re nice enough to put it on their website. Their site will never win any awards for web design, but the information is there, even with a webcam (updated hourly or so.) The information on the Pemi in Plymouth is available here, or look up realtime streamflow data for your area here.
The USGS also posts great historical data on their site if you’re interested in doing some data mining!
