Town Hall Meeting planned for September 10 in Owego

The Binghamton Office of the National Weather Service is hosting a “Town Hall” meeting and panel discussion about Flood Inundation Mapping Services on Wednesday, Sept. 10 at the Edward D. Hubbard Auditorium of the Tioga County Office Building, 56 Main St., Owego, N.Y. The meeting will run from 7 to 9 p.m. and is open to the public.

Service Hydrologist Jim Brewster will discuss the flood inundation mapping services available on the National Weather Service’s Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service web page. The presentation will focus on the Susquehanna River at Owego and provide attendees with an in depth look at available flood extent and inundation maps.

The discussion will show how these tools can be used by residents, the business community, and local officials to plan and identify areas of flood hazards and their degree of impact at certain levels on the river.

A question and answer panel discussion will take place with the National Weather Service and New York State Emergency Management officials, and the United States Geological Survey will follow the presentation.

For more information, contact Jim Brewster at james.brewster@noaa.gov, or call (607) 770-9531 ext. 234.
