Natural Hazards on Google Maps
Real-estate website Trulia continues to add incredibly useful local information for house hunters who wish to find out about potential neighborhoods in which to live.
The Trulia Local Google Map includes information about commuting times, local schools, nearby points of interest and local crime levels. Trulia Local now also includes three new options in their Natural Hazards heatmaps. The three new natural hazard zones relate to the natural hazards of hurricanes, wildfires, and tornadoes.
Using the heat map layers home buyers can see where their future home is located relative to where natural disasters historically strike. The Natural Hazard heatmaps also include the options to view earthquake and flood maps.
