NASA’s Global Flood Monitoring System (GFMS) has captured a flood and rain intensity forecast for Hurricane Michael over the next few days. The NASA NASA GEOS-5 forecast model is up to nearly 12 inches over the next three days. The GFMS is a NASA-funded experimental system using real-time Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission precipitation information (and GEOS-5 forecast precipitation) as input to a land and river model estimating the effects of the heavy rainfall on the streamflow in rivers and the existence and intensity of flooding.
