Weather and Current Conditions Maps
Because of Missouri’s geography, the state frequently experiences natural disasters. Ice storms, tornadoes, severe storms, and flooding are all common occurrences in Missouri. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the important spatial data they contain, along with maps from the National Weather Service, the U.S. Geological Service and other agencies can be critical tools in emergency management. They help provide much needed clarity for situational awareness and much more.
The following links to mapping and GIS resources may be of interest to emergency management and response agencies. Maps related to weather, precipitation, water flow, water levels and earthquakes are included.
In addition to the links below, the National Weather Service offers a variety of KML and RSS files and feeds that may be helpful to emergency management and response agencies.
