A link would have been nice. The only map, after searching the VaBeach City website, that I found with to flooding (GIS) requires plug-ins with references to Netscape Navigator and Windows 2000/XP. Doesn't sound new to me! There is no way I am dumping ten year old browser technology onto my computer.

Well, I wanted to check where my Thursday-Sunday Labor Day weekend hotel fell in the flood maps but I guess I will just cancel my reservation instead.

Won't matter, everything will be flooded, the flood maps on the VA Beach website are from 2008. Lots of changes to our city since then. If you are normally flooded like during the last rain storm, you will get it again. Laskin Road, Damneck, Lynnhaven, Oceana, Princess Anne all major roads have bad flooding.

I cannot find any flood zone maps on any of the city's website; and nothing that gives maps by address. Could you please put a link on your website so that this valuable information can be made available to the citizens.

Thank You

I couldn't seem to find the version that would allow you to zoom right down on your own street. Too confusing for me.
