Locate hazard information
There are multiple ways to locate information about hazards in DisasterAWARE and to help you assess impacts.
Pan and scroll the map to identify hazards
This method is commonly used and allows you to quickly locate and select a hazard directly from the map. Place your cursor over the map and then click and drag your mouse to pan the map and look for hazards. Make sure the pan tool is highlighted on the left toolbar when trying to pan the map. See the section on Map navigation basics for more on this.
View and search the active hazards list
|Within the Hazard panel, use the Search field to quickly filter the list by keyword. You may zoom to a hazard on the map by clicking the “Go to” coordinates in the list. To learn more about hazards, their data sources, and hazard-specific layers, see the section Data layers to support decision making.|
