Pennsylvania Launches New and Improved Flood Risk Tools

Pennsylvania Launches New and Improved Flood Risk Tools

Posted on December 10, 2020
Interactive mapping tools for Pennsylvania are making it easier for residents and businesses to find and use local flood risk information.
mit3In Pennsylvania, the new PA Flood Risk Tool [lnks.gd] developed by Penn State University in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and FEMA Region 3 features dashboards, reports, new data, and flood visualizations. The PA Flood Risk Tool is designed to be accessible to floodplain managers, insurance agents, developers, real estate agents, local planners and community members. The tool lets users explore flood risk for a particular area or property by navigating an interactive map that includes the best available flood data (Zone A Cross Sections, Preliminary Flood Zones, Depth Grids, and others), as well as roads, aerial imagery, and, where available, parcel data. The PA Flood Risk Tool can be used from a desktop computer or a cell phone.
