There are a number of ways you can view the flood hazards in Oregon, depending on your interest:


Interactive Map

Interactive map of the FEMA Special Flood Hazard Area

(also known as the “100-year” flood), with address search. 

(Note: click on Basemap in viewer for Imagery background)

Read before entering: 

This mosaic is composed of FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps, and are of three sources:

Effective studies;

Preliminary studies, where no pre-existing digital data exists (currently Tillamook, Washington, and Klamath Counties); and

Digitized data, from FEMA paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps (combination of FEMA Q3 product and an Oregon-sponsored project). 

Effective data is official, Preliminary is not final and there is a possibility of changes, and Digital data (much of Eastern Oregon) can be used for general purposes but may be spatially offset by a few hundred feet in places.  Use with caution.

Note: While every attempt is made to keep this map up-to-date, including quarterly review to include any new map revisions, this interactive map is for general purpose use only - not  for regulatory purposes.  See below for official FEMA representation*
