In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, which struck the Carolinas on Sept. 14 causing widespread damage, NASA quickly deployed a sophisticated airborne radar to give disaster response agencies a much-needed view of floodwaters that continued to threaten the region. In response to the event, the feature, "NASA Airborne Team Surveys Flooding from Hurricane Florence," was published on NASA.gov on October 4, 2018.
