How to use the Know Your Zone Map Tool.
The Storm Surge Zone interactive map menu bar is located on the upper right corner of the page – the menu defaults to the “Search for an address or location on the map”. To query other options, hover over the icon and left click to choose.
Search for an address/place in the search bar, there may be a number of addresses displayed, click on your address selection. The map will then reposition to that location, a flag will be displayed and a box will appear indicating the address. The Storm Surge Zone will be displayed in the information box to the right.
You also have the option to use the map directly by scrolling with the mouse to a location. Once at the location, hover over the property and with a left click you set the location. The tool will then display a flag with a box indicating the selected address. The Storm Surge Zone is displayed in the information box to the right.
Important to note: if your structure is on a slightly higher elevation, on the tool it will appear as being surrounded by a lower zone. In this case, you should consider for planning purposes, your location as being in the lower zone.
