New online map details Cedar Rapids flood recovery


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A new online map launched by the City of Cedar Rapids will provide updates on the progress of recovery. 

The "2008 Flood Viewer" has aerial photos and information about each flood-affected property including age, location in the designated flood management areas, whether it's registered for a voluntary buyout, involvement in the JumpStart Program, proposed locations of future permanent floodwalls and how the property was categorized during the 2008 Americorps Vista Visual Survey.

The map includes multiple layers of information and several search options.

City Manager Jim Prosser says, "The 2008 Flood Viewer will be updated in real time as our databases are updated. This is fresh information available 24/7 for all our citizens."
