iFlood is a partnership between researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the town of Nags Head, and the town of Duck to improve flooding predictions along the North Carolina Outer Banks. Citizen-scientist flood reports submitted by you, the app user, provide our research team with data about the location and timing of flooding events that help us evaluate and improve models for flooding owing to ocean storms and rainfall. If successful our model will be applied to help manage flooding hazards for the Outer Banks.
