If you live down here in Louisiana, you keep your eye out for flooding during this time of year. There’s massive runoff from rivers and streams throughout the north, the pass right by my hometown. The map below really pushes the focus on how much water actually come down the river. Two thirds of all the water in America drains right by us.  A stunning new map shows the complex network of rivers and streams in the contiguous United States. Created by Imgur user Fejetlenfej, a geographer and GIS analyst with a “˜lifelong passion for beautiful maps,’ it highlights the massive expanse of river basins across the country ““ in particular, those, which feed the Mississippi River.  You can see why we are so concerned about flooding.
