Short summary
An operational framework was implemented to generate retrospective ensemble streamflow forecasts for an extreme hydrological event, Hurricane Irene. The implications of this work benefit streamflow forecast efforts and can be used for numerous applications, such as forecasting the water resources variability, predicting fate of water quality and climate change scenarios. Socio-economic analysis may be used to weigh on how improved forecasts prevent life loss and minimize property damage.
