The nation's streamflow picture was generally wetter than usual in January, except in the East, according to a check by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Department of the Interior.
USGS hydrologists said that more than 80% of the key index gaging stations across the country reported average or above-average streamflow during January. Of the stations reporting below average streamflow, most were in the eastern part of the country, with small, dry areas reported in Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, and Ohio. In the eastern United States—from Maine south to Florida and west to Pennsylvania and Tennessee—21 of the 65 key index stations reported streamflow that was much below average for the month, within the lowest 25% of record.
