Texas Flood Watch
How much water falls during a storm?
See how much water fell in your yard, neighborhood, and city.
Choose an area (or multiple areas) and a rainfall amount—then it will tell you how many gallons of water fell from the sky onto that area.

Texas Water Dashboard
The Texas Water Dashboard is a web mapping application that presents U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) real-time stream, lake, reservoir, precipitation, and well data in Texas in context with current weather and hazard conditions.
Two fully-autonomous Twitter feeds distribute water level and precipitation data during flooding or severe rainfall: @USGS_TexasFlood and @USGS_TexasRain.
