FEMA NFHL: View Custom Combinations of FEMA Flood Hazard Information Using Google Earth™
The FEMA NFHL utility allows you to use Google Earth (TM) to view custom combinations of flood hazard information from FEMA’s National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL). View one, several, or all of the layers available in the application. The NFHL layers include flood hazard zones, floodways, Coastal Barrier Resources System and Otherwise Protected Area units, community boundaries and names, Base Flood Elevations, cross sections and coastal transects and their labels, hydraulic and flood control structures, and Flood Insurance Rate Map and Letter of Map Revision boundaries and numbers. Additional reference layers include the status of NFHL data availability, point locations for Letters of Map Amendment and Letters of Map Revision Based on Fill, Q3 base flood, and subbasin hydrologic units. To use the application, you must have Google Earth installed on your computer, a high-speed Internet connection, and the FEMA NFHL kmz file. The kmz file is available through FEMA's Map Service Center at http://msc.fema.gov.
