Subject:  Soliciting comments until May 18, 2018, on the

          proposed termination of the NWS Hydrologic Information

          Center website


NWS is accepting comments until May 18, 2018, on a proposal to

terminate the Hydrologic Information Center (HIC) website at:


This legacy web site was launched many years ago to provide NWS

flood loss information to the general public and reports to the

US Army Corps of Engineers. The HIC website is now obsolete

because these detailed reports are no longer being generated.

The underlying data is available to the public through the NOAA

National Centers for Environmental Information. To ease the

transition for NWS data partners and users, a breakdown of the

options available for obtaining information normally found via

the HIC URL is provided below.


HIC Site Data Link: Alternative Link          


Flood Damage Data currently at now at


Fatality Data currently at

now at (1996 to

present) or


Spring Flood Outlook formerly at now



Loss Reports currently at now at


flood Safety Info formerly at

now at


NWS will evaluate all comments to determine whether to proceed

with this change. If approved, NWS will send a Service Change

Notice giving 30 day notice of the termination date.
