Esri has set up a Disaster Response Program Hurricane Hub site. The site consolidates maps, public applications, GIS data, and resource materials from U.S. federal agencies (FEMA, the US Army Corps of Engineers, NOAA, and others) relating to Hurricane disaster response efforts.

Included among this collection from Esri:

The Hurricane Incident Journal from FEMA shows Laura’s projected path overlaid with CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index and COVID-19 case rates from Johns Hopkins University to illustrate which vulnerable populations are most at-risk from the storm’s impacts. The app estimates the number of unemployed workers, households in poverty, and households relying on food stamps/SNAP benefits that will be impacted by either the storm’s surge or wind field.

The USACE Flood Inundation Mapping app from the US Army Corps of Engineers models storm surge and projected river and stream flooding from Hurricane Laura against live stream gauges and levee information to visualize the impacts of coastal and inland inundation from the storm.
