Abstract

A major storm brought large amounts of rainfall over the southeastern United States April 11-13, 1979. The report presents analyses of the meteorological settings of the storms, the distribution of rainfall, and supplementary rainfall data. It also gives summaries of flood stages and discharges at 221 streamflow gaging stations, stages and contents of 10 reservoirs, flood-crest stages and hydrograph data (gage height, discharge, and accumulated runoff at selected times) at 46 gaging stations, ground-water fluctuations in 11 observation wells, and water salinity and temperature at 22 sites along the Intracoastal Waterway in Mobile Bay. The availability of aerial photography obtained during the flood is summarized, and flood damages are discussed.
