ABOUT THE HAZARDS REPORTER

The purpose of the Hazards Reporter is to provide landowners, planners, agency staff and interested citizens with information on hazards. Use this tool to generate and produce hazard reports for specific areas of interest. The tool includes the ability to search tax lots (where available), search based on address, or search based on the user-generated boundary (polygon).

This map viewer uses authorized maps from multiple state and federal agencies for coastal erosion, landslides, floodplains, ground shaking areas, faults, and wildfire risk areas. However, there are areas of the state for which maps or related information was not available.

STEPS FOR USING THE HAZARDS REPORTER
  1. Known to work well in Mozilla Firefox version 3.x or greater or Internet Explorer version 7 or greater.
  2. To find a location, enter the address or place name in “Find on Map” box.

    For example, "Corvallis" or "122 Valley Library, Corvallis"

    This will zoom the map within the general area of the address. If you do not have any address information or are unable to get to the correct location using address, use the zoom and pan tools or the Oregon Taxlots layer to locate your area of interest.

  3. Map layers are displayed by clicking on each of the hazards located to the left of the map. Always click the “+” to see a legend and determine what information a map layer is displaying. Where appropriate, i.e. when zoomed in, you can click on the name of the hazard to use the “transparency” slider to see the background images behind the map layers.
  4. To generate a report:
    1. right-click on a location on the map; or
    2. select a tax lot by holding down the Shift key and click on the tax lot; or
    3. click on the Draw Mode button, and drawn an area of interest. Left click draws corners and right click selects the area.

    If you right-click on a location or select a tax lot, this will automatically generate a report. If you chose an area of interest in Draw Mode, then enter the Title and press “Report.”

Welcome to the Hazards Reporter. Please read the following disclaimer.

Floodplain elements do not depict all flood hazards in the state of Oregon. Floodplain studies tend to focus on developed areas, generally with drainage areas greater than one mile.

The State of Oregon shall not be responsible for any claims attributable to errors, omission or other inaccuracies in the information contained in floodplain elements. In no event shall the State of Oregon be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential loss or damage of any nature caused to any person, party or entity as a results of use of the information set forth herein.
