The USGS maintains a variety of webcams across the U.S. These webcams provide valuable research information and data to 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).
