FloodWatch allows users to monitor rivers and streams throughout the United States. Add USGS gages to your favorites for quick monitoring of current gauge height, precipitation, and flood stage.

By leveraging data from the US Geological Survey and National Weather Service, FloodWatch presents the most recent and historical river heights, precipitation totals, discharge, and flood stage data. Graphs are available to help you visualize the rise and fall of the river, precipitation, and streamflow. Note that only US Geological Survey gauges with real-time data capabilities are surfaced within the application; not all United States gauges are available.

FloodWatch is also geared towards those with interests in or near flood plains. If your home or other interests have been flooded in the past or could be flooded in the future, FloodWatch allows you to easily keep an eye on any potential flooding issues.

Really Nice App

Living on the water here in South Louisiana, I'm always looking for the best method of looking at the water levels. This app is quick and easy. I love how is saves my favorites and I don't have to "remember the names" (hint to the other reviewer).
I would really like to purchase the app, but when I go to purchase it for $2.99 it ask if I want to remove "one" ad? No, I'd like to remove ALL of the ads. What? Next month another ad is going to pop up and I have to pay to remove that ad too? I guess my only option is to "tip" the developer because the app is certainly worth "something" even if the ads don't disappear. 👍🏻

Excellent !!!!'nnnnnnn

One of my favorite apps. Fast accurate info. I'd like to see the favorite screen expanded as I'm monitoring all rivers in six states. They fit but kick me out of the app after viewing which is annoying. Also I'd like push capability and the ability to email the charts created. This app is actually better and more user friendly than the USGS web site. Just keep making it better.

Also, is like the capability to automatically surf over to the USGS web page without leaving the app like the app on earthquakes takes you to the website and gives the ability to email the page to others. I literally use this app every day - is tremendous with great potential.

Paid for ad free twice.

This app has been useful to me for a long time as I live in a flood zone. It doesn’t do much, and what it does do is not in real time, but it’s helpful. However, over the years the ads have gotten more and more intrusive. They take over the screen and it requires closing and reopening the app. I think developers deserve to get paid, either by users or advertising, but not both. I’ve given this dude $1.99 on at least two occasions to no effect. Mind you, there have never ever been any added features. He simply converts 3 data points from the USGS and makes it work on a mobile platform. I should ask for my money back. I’ve bought a real rain gauge and will check the creek height using a device with larger screen. I would have thought the app had been abandoned, but dev is selling more ads all the time and has updated enough to work on iOS 13.

Developer Response ,

Hi Contrari,

Thanks for the feedback and for being understanding. However, you're clearly misreading the user interface for purchasing the removal of ads. There's a very clear button on the "Remove Ads" screen that says "Remove Ads." The $1.99 purchase you describe is for leaving a "tip," which does not remove ads. It's merely a goodwill gesture to support further development.

You need to purchase the ad removal in-app purchase, which is currently $8.99 USD.

Please email feedback-floodwatch@d5gtech.com. As long-time user, I'd love to gather more feedback from you. Thanks in advance!
