Abstract

In July 1994, parts of Georgia, Alabama and Florida were devastated by floods resulting from rainfall produced by Tropical Storm Alberto. The flooding resulted in 33 human deaths in towns and small communities or near swollen streams. Total damages to public and private property were estimated at nearly $1 billion dollars. This article highlights severe stream flooding resulting from Alberto and describes U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) efforts to document this event and provide information to those who need it.
