EPA Climate Ready Water Utilities Initiative Releases Storm Surge Inundation Map

Interested in knowing more about how storm surges can affect communities along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts?  EPA has just posted a new Storm Surge Inundation Map that can help.

The Storm Surge Inundation Map is an interactive map that illustrates the current worst-case storm surge and inundation scenarios on the American Gulf and Atlantic coasts, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The map combines data layers from FEMA 100 and 500 year flood maps as well as NOAA’s Sea, Lake, and Overland Surge from Hurricanes (SLOSH) and National Hurricane Center’s coastal county hurricane strike maps.  Explore the map on EPA’s website.
