Process description:
Observed flooding by GEM staff and Public Works following Tropical Depression Beryl and Tropical Storm number 10 in
1994. Point attribute tables describe elevation of high water marks, date of observation, observer, and location of point where
flooding was noted. High water marks were surveyed in NGVD29 and converted to NAVD88.
Supplemental_Information
Elevation of high water is not available for all points. Point locations are mapped based only on field note descriptions and
field map analysis. However, point elevations indicating high water are surveyed.
