A team from the USGS New England Water Science Center is surveying 3 locations in the state, determining their elevations and installing receiving brackets at those sites that will hold a network of sophisticated sensors that can be installed days-to-hours before a storm makes landfall. The network, which will include 763 locations from Virginia to Maine, will dramatically decrease the time it takes to provide FEMA, NOAA and other agencies information they need to help tailor their response and recovery efforts.
