New Resource from FEMA – National Risk Index
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announces some new resources that share how communities can be more resilient from floods as they happen more frequently. The National Risk Index is easy to use and provides a means to prioritize resilience efforts by providing an at-a-glance overview of multiple natural hazard risk factors. It is accessible to homeowners or renters or anyone interested in mitigation or understanding natural hazards. You can follow this link to see some of those tools – National Risk Index for Natural Hazards (NRI) | FEMA.gov
