I'll be adding these overlays to the next build of YAAC. Is there an existing symbol icon for flood gauges?

Thanks for the tip.  All new additions to the symbol tables are being made
in the NEW SYMBOLS link on the aprs.org/symbols.html page.

I just made this addition for the WATER symbol:

WATER #w
/w = Water Station or other H2O
\w = flooding (or Avalanche/slides)
Aw = Avalanche
Gw = Green Flood Gauge
Mw = Mud slide
Nw = Normal flood gauge (blue)
Rw = Red flood gauge
Sw = Snow Blockage
Yw = Yellow flood gauge

This was at the suggestion of the FEMA Tech Director just recovering from
their severl flooding events in Louisana and NC.

Any others?
