SHIVA–Seattle provides new tool for seeing natural hazards

Seattle just developed a new tool for seeing aggregated information about natural hazards for all land in the city. What is most vulnerable to landslides, earthquake and soil liquefaction, flooding or tsunami?  The information has previously been available separately, but this new map allows viewers to see it all in one place in easily accessed form, searchable by address. The city explains:

The Seattle Hazard Identification and Vulnerability Analysis (SHIVA) identifies 18 hazards that pose the greatest risk to the city. The SHIVA is intended for anyone wishing to better understand how hazards impact the Seattle community, and provides a great basis for learning about local hazards, how they impact Seattle communities, and how the city plans to respond.
