... Flood stage changes for the Chipola River at Marianna...

To: emergency management officials, news media, and other users.

Effective Thursday, February 23, 2017 the National Weather Service
in Tallahassee will modify the flood stage levels for the Chipola
River at Marianna [us-90] (malf1) to better reflect impacts from
flooding along this portion of the river.

These new flood levels are:

Action stage 14 feet (down 1 foot)
minor flood stage 18 feet (down 1 foot)
moderate flood stage 22 feet (down 4 feet)
major flood stage 26 feet (down 13.1 feet)

This location is a flood only forecast point, which means that
forecasts are issued for this location whenever the river is
expected to reach or exceed action stage within the next five days.
These forecasts are issued by the southeast river forecast center in
Peachtree City, Georgia. River flood warnings for this location are
issued by the National Weather Service in Tallahassee whenever the
river is expected to exceed flood stage.

These updated flood stages were a direct result of analysis of
several significant floods in Marianna, a review of Florida
Department of Transportation Highway elevation data, feedback from
the Jackson County emergency management agency, and an extensive
site survey along the Jackson County stretch of the Chipola River.
Additionally, Oral and written histories from Jackson County
residents have been helpful in reconstructing the magnitude of some
of the instances of major flooding prior to a river gauge being
installed in Marianna.

A set of statements have been developed that communicate impacts
along the Chipola River at Marianna. These are:

At 16 feet... the Yancey boat ramp off caverns Road floods.

At 18 feet... water begins to overflow into low lying areas north of
town near the Florida caverns. The southern half of the citizens
Lodge Park begins to flood. The Magnolia Road boat ramp begins to
flood.

At 18.5 feet... water begins to overtop the bank at Turtle Bend Lane.

At 19 feet... the Florida caverns is subject to closure. Water begins
to flood old US Road east of Marianna near Bridgewood drive.
Flooding increases at Turtle Bend beginning to flood primary access
into the area.

At 20 feet... water spreads out across the flood plain north of
Marianna near caverns Road inundating much of the citizens Lodge
Park.

At 20.5 feet... flooding increases south of I 10 with areas near
Magnolia Road beginning to flood. Water begins to surround several
homes off Turtle Bend Lane. Access into the area is severely
restricted.

At 21.0 feet... extensive flooding occurs in the citizens Lodge Park.
Water begins to approach the Lodge.

At 22.0 feet... the Lodge north of town is surrounded by flood
waters. Homes in Turtle Bend become inaccessible.

At 23.0 feet... homes in Marianna on Angela drive are surrounded by
flood waters. A home on Cherokee street south of Putnam street is
also surrounded by flood waters.

At 24.0 feet... water approaches the base of the Magnolia Road bridge
south of I-10.

At 25.0 feet... water approaches residences along Noland street near
kelson Avenue in Marianna.

At 26 feet... major flooding begins along the Chipola River in
Marianna affecting numerous homes on the West Bank of the river.
Caverns Road (sr-166) begins to flood on the south side of the
bridge near Yancey boat ramp. Water reaches the base of the Magnolia
Road bridge and the Road is subject to closure.

At 30.0 feet... water reaches the base of the caverns Road (sr-166)
bridge and the bridge is subject to closure.

At 31.0 feet... water reaches the base of the Interstate 10 bridge

At 33.0 feet... water reaches the base of the US-90 bridge

At 35.0 feet... water reaches the Road surface of Interstate 10.

At 36.0 feet... water reaches the Road surface of the US-90 bridge

At 40.0 feet... this is the height of the top of the gauge equipment
on the US-90 bridge.

the US geological survey. Without this critical data, forecasts and
warnings would not be possible at this location. You can learn more
