FEMA Hazard Mapping Information Platform
This online mapping application produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) allows users to generate and print hazard maps of any area in the United States. Hazard data is available for floods, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. The map can be navigated by entering a street address, city, and ZIP code or by using the cursor to move east, west, north, or south and to zoom in and out. Aerial photography is available, and a legend provides information on hazard type and distribution (denoted by colored patterns), cities and towns, streets and highways, political boundaries, rivers and lakes, and other features.
