Streamflows were above normal in much of the Mississippi River basin and the western United States during November because of runoff from heavy precipitation, but were below normal along the Eastern Seaboard, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Record high or near record high flows were reported at 22 sites in the Mississippi River basin and the western states, with flow of the Mississippi River at Vicksburg averaging the second highest for November during 56 years of records. In contrast, record low or near record low flows occurred at five sites in Florida, Kansas, Montana, and Hawaii.
