ALERT: December 13th update on the status of the nationwide data transmission error preventing stream gauge data collected at affected locations from being displayed on the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Services (AHPS) webpages. As of 11/08/2018, The USGS has restored all impacted operational stream gauges to transmitting status. The status map of gauge outages from other agencies is here. This will be the last outage map posted as over 95% of the gauge outages have been restored. Local NWS offices will continue to monitor the remaining gauge outages.

16.5 This stage compares to a record flow of around 22000 cubic feet per second set 1953
16 The Kingsford and Niagara Parks are flooded. This stage compares to a flow of 19900 cfs. In Niagara...floodwaters affect Sherman street and the Stora Enso Mill...as well as the United Methodist Church. In Southern Dickinson County...water is covering highway 577...and a trailer park in the city of Quinnesec is flooded. River Road in Aurora is covered by flood waters at 19700 cfs
15.5 Water is covering adjacent parks in both Kingsford and Niagara. River road in Aurora is covered with water. This stage compares to a flow of 19700 cubic feet per second
15 This stage compares to 19000 CFS at the Kingsford Dam. Flood waters reach the Aurora fire protection station
14.5 In the city of Niagara water begins to cover the Niagara boat landing on Tyler road...and water approaches homes along Sherman street. This stage compares to a flow of 16500 cubic feet per second
13 Water approaches the parking lot of the Union Protestant Church
11.5 Near 8200 CFS, piers gorge downstream considered high for local rafting companies downstream
10 Which is bankfull stage...there is flooding of lowland. Piers gorge rapids downstream becoming active
7.5 7.5 feet or 3000 CFS considered the top end for the ideal range for local rafting companies downstream
5 or around 1000 cfs...considered the low end of ideal conditions for rafting downstream
