It’s Valdosta’s turn, after
Lowndes County approved up to $40,000,
tomorrow (Thursday 11 Aug 2016),
it’s on the
Valdosta City Council agenda
for the city to approve a similar amount,
adding up to matching what USGS is willing to supply.
It was Valdosta’s idea in the first place, and maybe this
interactive flood map for a small part of the Withlacoochee River through Valdosta will help prevent, or at least provide early warning for,
the types of
road closings and other floodings that happened in 2009.
