Surface In-Situ Networks
The Federal Integrated Flood Observing and Warning System (IFLOWS) is a cooperative venture between the National Weather Service (NWS) and seven flood-prone Appalachian states (KY, NC, NY, PA, TN, VA, and WV). IFLOWS' purpose is to reduce the annual loss of life from flash floods, reduce property damage, and reduce disruption of commerce and human activities. To accomplish these goals IFLOWS uses communications technology and software to collect real time sensor data from remote locations, and disseminate the data among government organizations responsible for public safety.
