When Seconds Count, StormReady® Communities are Prepared

Guideline 2: Hydrometeorological Monitoring

To obtain StormReady recognition, each EOC/WP should have some combination of the following recommended means of gathering ancillary weather information. Requirements are based on population:

  • Access to radar data via Internet, TV, etc.
  • Instruments to provide a measure of local hydrologic conditions. These instruments cannot be the sole means of hydrometeorological monitoring, i.e., wind equipment, river gages
  • Locally owned and operated weather radar.
