May 22, 2013 10:15 EDT: Notice:
The GOES-East (GOES-13) is currently out of service. Due to problems encountered, at 6:05 a.m. this morning, a command was initiated to reboot the satellite.
The current estimated time for return to service is Thursday, May 23, 2013 in the evening.
NOAA switched the feed from GOES East to GOES West. Those sites within the footprint of GOES West will get data; those outside the footprint of GOES West, or with an angle that doesn't reach GOES West will not.
NOAA will additionally turn on GOES-14, but not move it. Since it is further East, we should pick up more of the missing stations.

NOTICE March 5, 2013-- USGS to Discontinue Streamgages Due to
Sequestration: The U.S. Geological
Survey (USGS) will discontinue operation of up to 375 streamgages
nationwide due to budget cuts as a result of sequestration.
Additional streamgages may be affected if partners reduce their
funding to support USGS streamgages. The USGS is working to
identify which streamgages will be impacted and will post this
information as it becomes available. Streamgages are used
nationwide to predict and address drought and flood conditions by
monitoring water availability. The USGS and over 850 Federal,
State, and local agencies cooperatively fund the USGS streamgaging
network, which consists of over 8,000 streamgages. When budget
fluctuations occur, the network is impacted. Specific impacts to
the Virginia real-time network currently are not

The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Water Information
System (NWIS) is a comprehensive and distributed application
that supports the acquisition, processing, and long-term
storage of water data. USGS Water Data for the Nation Site serves as the publicly
available portal to a geographically seamless set of much of
the water data maintained within NWIS
USGS Water Data for the Nation Site provides access to water data from over 1.5
million sites in all 50 States and additional border and
territorial sites. The data are organized within the
categories listed to the left.
The water data available via this site have been acquired as
part of the USGS investigations of the occurrence, quantity,
quality, distribution, and movement of the surface and
underground waters that constitute the Nation's water
resources. Additional information about the USGS and water
resources of the Nation is available at
