What’s the earthquake risk in your neighborhood? Is your home or business located on a flood plain? To find out the answers to these questions and more, check out the new maps (click here) created by PBEM in partnership with Portland’s neighborhood coalition offices. The maps identify natural hazards throughout the city. They offer a neighborhood coalition by neighborhood coalition account of known earthquake faults, flood plains and other dangers, including hazardous material sites, steep slopes and forested areas at risk of fire. The maps also show community resources – such as evacuation routes and key transportation corridors used during emergencies, hospitals, county clinics, schools, fire stations and police facilities – within each neighborhood coalition area.
Each map can be downloaded below or viewed in person at the following seven neighborhood coalition offices:
The maps were created by compiling information from a variety of existing sources, including data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI).
