Water resources information, whether during times of drought or flood, is critical to both NWS WFOs and SERFC partners, such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and other water managers. The SERFC Water Resources Outlook (WRO) is an internet-based prerecorded briefing product that addresses topics that impact water resource concerns across the SERFC’s area of responsibility, which extends across much of the Southeast U.S.
The WRO contains a variety of hydrometeorological information and it is produced both on a bi-monthly and on an as-needed basis.
Subscribers will receive an email whenever the WRO is updated – about one message every two weeks.
The HVA is a product issued by email on an infrequent basis to convey information regarding a flood or potential flood event. This product can provide either “outlook” information for a potential flood or information regarding on-going flooding. Click here for an example of an HVA.
The HVA is about a page or two in length and is typically issued once a day, usually in mid afternoon, during times of flooding. HVAs are not issued during non-flood times or during isolated minor flood events. They are issued during widespread moderate or major flooding.
Subscribers will receive an email whenever the HVA is updated – rarely during quiet times, but once a day during floods.
