Graphical representation of flood inundation for NWS flood categories are based on steady state hydraulic modeling of water surface elevations for incremented discharges. Map shows approximate inundation areas for given water surface elevations and should not be used for navigation or permitting or other legal purposes, but strictly as a planning reference tool.

Site-specific information:
These maps were prepared in cooperation with the USGS Indiana Water Science Center and the City of Fort Wayne.

Extended rating:
Rating Curve Extension - The Rating Curve Extension is calculated by using either a linear, logarithmic, or hydraulic technique to extend the rating curve above the currently established relationship between stage and flow.

Flood Impacts Collapse

22 Structural damage is done to homes and businesses on the south side of Fort Wayne near the Saint Mary's River. Record flood was set on July 9, 2003 when the river reached 21.2 feet.
20 A major flood is in progress and water is nearing the top of many levees. When the Muldoon Bridge gage reads 20.3 feet, the flood becomes a 100 year event.
19 Flooding reaching major category with extensive evacuations becoming necessary. Primary roads and bridges are closed at this level.
18 An increasing number of city streets flood, and more evacuations become necessary. Property damage approaches severe category in some areas at this level.
17 Some residents in the Winchester Road area and Fairwick Apartments may need to be evacuated. Property damage increases in some areas at this level.
15 Flooding occurs on the lowest unprotected city streets, park drives and county roads.
14 Flooding occurs in parks and low farmland throughout southern Allen County. The City of Fort Wayne starts 24 hour flood fighting procedures.
