FEMA’s National Risk Index for Natural Hazards

FEMA’s National Risk Index for Natural Hazards

FEMA recently released a new online mapping tool that identifies communities most at risk to 18 natural hazards. This application visualizes natural hazard risk metrics and includes data about expected annual losses from natural hazards, social vulnerability and community resilience.

The National Risk Index’s interactive web maps are at the county and Census tract level and made available via geographic information system (GIS) services for custom analyses. With this data, you can discover a holistic view of community risk to natural hazards.
