River Gauge Readings Update

The previous blog entry gave the website for the National Weather Service (NWS), which helps when forecasting when the river will flood, crest, etc. The U.S. Geological Service (USGS) is the agency that installs and maintains the gauge. Until the NWS updates their site to start providing real-time readings from the Vinton gauge, these readings can be obtained on the USGS website that can be reached by clicking here. Remember, flood stage at Vinton is 15 feet.
