HOW TO USE THE FLOOD MAPS






Instructions for using the flood map
  • Go to the area where you want to view a flood hazard map
  • Select the icon () and a new pop-up frame will appear onscreen
  • Read the contents of the pop-up frame and click the link to display the flood hazard map
Important:

These hazard maps are indicative inundation maps for large flood events and useful only for knowing where not to be during extremely heavy rainfall. For local governments, these flood hazard maps can be used for localized emergency response (i.e. evacuation and access routes, road closures, siting of key rescue facilities) and for urban planning. It should not be used for insurance and bank appraisal purposes.

These hazard maps are only as good as the topographic map base that was used in the flood simulation.
