Iowa Flood Center provides Iowans tools to prepare for spring flooding

To help Iowans prepare for flood season, the Iowa Flood Center (IFC) developed the Iowa Flood Information System (IFIS) to provide real-time information about stream levels, flood alerts and forecasts, and hydrologic conditions for the entire state.

The Iowa Flood Center is part of the University of Iowa College of Engineering. IFC students, staff, and researchers strive to develop the most advanced tools and innovative projects to improve Iowa’s flood preparedness and resiliency.
