FEMA releases new resources to inspire communities to reduce risks

FEMA launched a new interactive story map to help coastal communities understand their unique risks and use the data from coastal studies to become more resilient. Thinking Beyond Flood Maps presents ideas to inspire coastal communities to use FEMA flood mapping data for more than just floodplain management ordinances or explaining flood insurance purchase requirements. Case studies demonstrate how four coastal communities used the data to enhance resiliency from floods. To view the story maps, visit fema.gov.
