May 23, 2013 10:45 EDT: Update:
The outage of the GOES-13 East satellite that occurred on May 22, 2013 which has kept some USGS Water Data current condition data from being updated is only affecting a few sites presently.
Rainfall monitoring sites operated by the USGS in
Mississippi are strictly for operational purposes. Precipitation
data, if available for this station, are temporary and will only be
displayed for 31 days. Precipitation data will NOT be available for
retrieval following the 31-day display period. The temporary
classification means that documented routine inspections and other
quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the
data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general
scientific or interpretive studies.
