Flood, Wildfire, Wind, And Heat Risk Factors

The risk factor results for any individual location shown on this Site are for general information only, and you should not rely on them to determine whether you are required to obtain any specific insurance or take any other action.

The flood factor is based on the property’s projected likelihood and depth of flooding reaching the building. The wildfire factor is based on the property’s distance to wildfire risk areas and burnable vegetation. The heat factor indicates a property’s relative risk to heat, taking into account both how heat in the area compares to the rest of the country, and how things like shade, greenspace, and proximity to water affect heat at the property relative to other nearby properties. The wind factor is based on a property’s likelihood of experiencing damage from winds from hurricane events, tornadoes, tropical storms, and severe wind events.

The models are designed to approximate risk and are not intended for active events. The risk factors may be inaccurate in some areas and the address locator may not accurately identify the address that you provide. Before making any major decisions related to flood risk, such as investment or financial planning decisions, you should contact the National Flood Insurance Program for more information or to view an official copy of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps and to discuss with qualified experts the flood elevations and zones in the vicinity of the property. Before making any major decisions related to wildfire risk, such as investment or financial planning decisions, you should secure and review a homeowners or renters insurance policy to ensure that you have adequate coverage for your property and personal belongings. FEMA also recommends that you photograph or video your property or personal belongings. Finally, information provided on this Site related to the risk of flood, wildfire, wind or heat damage is based on First Street Foundation’s Risk Factor property-level climate models. You can read more about First Street Foundation’s Models and Methodology on their website, linked here.
