The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has just released an update to the Master Plan Data Viewer.
According to CPRA, the viewer is an online tool that lets residents learn more about their current and future flood risk. The viewer was created in response to the public’s number one question about the coast, which is: “How bad is flooding going to get?”
The viewer is an interactive tool allowing people to go online, type in a location, and learn how likely that place is to flood from hurricanes and coastal storm surge.
People can also see estimated damages from storm surge flooding, as well as estimates of how flood risk could change as master plan projects are constructed.
“The viewer serves as a one-stop shop for much of the information that was produced as part of the 2017 Coastal Master Plan. The viewer provides insight into current and future land change, flood depths, economic damage, coastal vegetation, social vulnerability, 2017 Master Plan Projects, and resources to reduce risk,” said CPRA.
CPRA also added that users can obtain more information about master plan projects such as descriptions, cost, implementation period, and if the project becomes funded and moves into different stages of planning, design, and construction.
