FEMA Flood Risk Layers Added to AHPS Maps

The National Weather Service has added the option to display FEMA flood risk layers on top of AHPS river gage maps. Below is an example showing the flood risk layers for Silver Creek near Sellersburg Indiana:

The flood risk areas will only appear at zoom levels between 14 and 16. Not all areas of the country will have flood risk layers, and not all areas with layers will have the .02% risk and floodway areas delineated.

The National Weather Service is happy to work with FEMA making the areas of flood risk near river gages better known.
