Active floods and Flood Factor

Flood Factor does not include active or real-time flood information, and should not be used for evacuation planning or to predict the impact of an oncoming storm or flood. 

The floods shown on Flood Factor include modeled recreations of more than 100 major historic floods and generated flood maps projecting current and future risks.

Find information on active or approaching floods

In the event of a flood warning or flood watch, please visit the National Weather Service (NWS) or check with your local emergency official for up-to-date information. If there is an approaching hurricane or tropical storm, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) may also have relevant information.
