Arizona unveils online tool to track natural hazards

PHOENIX — The Arizona Geological Survey, in partnership with the state
Division of Emergency Management, is hoping a new online tool will help
residents identify and mitigate natural hazards.

The Natural Hazard Viewer of Arizona website is an interactive that focuses
on four hazards common to the state — earthquakes, earth fissures, floods and
wildfires.

The site describes each hazard in detail with displays on a map.

Officials said it will serve county planners, emergency management offices and
water district managers, but it is also free for the public, who can use the
Find Local Hazards search tool to pinpoint conditions that exist within a
three-mile radius of any address.
