The USGS maintains a variety of webcams across the U.S. These webcams provide valuable research information and data to the USGS scientists, the National Weather Service, emergency managers, and area residents to evaluate near, real-time conditions during natural hazard events (most webcams refresh every 5 - 20 minutes).
