NWS Installs Weather Station In Tanner Creek Watershed

The National Weather Service has installed a new weather station in the Tanner Creek watershed, within the Eagle Creek Fire Burned Area, to help improve forecasting of potential hazards in the event of severe weather.  The automated station was placed in the Tanner Creek drainage to measure rainfall and help predict hazards resulting from the Eagle Creek Fire.  The fire burned through vegetation on slopes in several Gorge watersheds, which further destabilized soil and rocks and made them more susceptible to erosion or sliding during heavy rains, and increased the risk of flash floods, landslides, and debris flows.  Tanner Creek was identified as one of the most badly burned watersheds.
