This table is a list of every flood event we have found from 1948 in the MARFC (Middle Atlantic River Forecast Center) service area. Our service area covers portions of Virginia, West Virginia, Delware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. Click on the Year (link) for a list of flood events that occurred.
The floods listed have occurred at the designated forecast points (locations) in the MARFC service area only. The flood stage at a few locations has changed over the years due to gage relocation or reestablishment. We have tried to use the flood stage at the time of the flood.
Appreciation is extended to The Pennsylvania State University Department of Meteorology for providing access to the PSU Reanalysis Maps and to David Roth of the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC) for providing access to HPC hurricane information.
RFC Reanalysis Maps are provided internally by the Middle Atlantic River Forecast Center and the State College, Pennsylvania Forecast Office.
Daily weather maps data were issued daily from January 1, 1871 to April 14, 1968 and then again from Semptember 1, 2002 to present. The daily weather maps were issued in a weekly format from April 15, 1968 to August 31, 2002. We have tried to provide 6 days of maps ahead of the first crest and one day after the last crest. Therefore addional maps will usually be seen from April 14, 1968 to August 31, 2002.
