Shelter and Storm Surge Zone Mapping Tool

Click here to go to the Shelter and Storm Surge Zone Mapping Tool

This tool allows viewers to enter a specific address within the County and visually determine if that location is within an area subject to storm surge flooding. It also identifies the location of all potential shelters within the County. During a real emergency event, where sheltering of residents may be needed only those shelters that are open will be shown on the interactive map. Please note that the shelter closest to your residence may not be open. The mapping tool can also be used to provide viewers with directions to shelter locations.
