The Flood Hazard Assessment Tool (FHAT) is an informational map viewer that displays flood hazard zones. The FHAT utilizes ArcGIS REST services to combine data from various sources in a customize map viewer.
The following datasets used in the FHAT, allow users to search and assess flood risk based on the 1-percent annual chance event (or Special Flood Hazard Areas) identified on FEMA’s Flood Insurance Rate Maps:
FEMA’s National Flood Hazard Layer
The National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL) is a geospatial database that contains current effective flood hazard data. FEMA provides the flood hazard data to support the National Flood Insurance Program. You can use the information to better understand your level of flood risk and type of flooding.
The NFHL is made from effective flood maps and Letters of Map Change (LOMC) delivered to communities. NFHL digital data covers over 90 percent of the U.S. population. New and revised data is being added continuously. If you need information for areas not covered by the NFHL data, there may be other FEMA products which provide coverage for those areas.
