FEMA has flood hazard maps that can be viewed online. Part of the National Flood Insurance Program, the 100 and 500 year flood hazard zones are overlaid on aerial orthophotography.You can also view the FEMA overlays in Google Earth.
I just got the notification for my next assignment - Fort Useless.
Yeah, I know. Heard that one already.Of course, my reaction when I saw it was more "WTF?" because it wasn't on my list.
There is a reason the list is called a 'Dream Sheet'
I am loving all the history in the area, though. One of the houses we looked at (we really like it, but it's empty right now, and most likely won't be available when we move in June) is less than 2 miles from the visitor's center for the Yorktown battlefield. Plus colonial Williamsburg, and all the Civil War stuff. I'm going to have some fun with all of that.And we homeschool our kids, so there's lots of stuff for them to learn about.
Just driving up and down the freeway there is a history lesson: Every offramp seems to be a battle or other historical site.
I love the south, I adore the south, I went to college in the south...but driving by the "Stonewall Jackson SHRINE" on 95 cracks me up every time!
