New Utah Hazard Planning Tool Created by Western Water Assessment Provides Resources on Historic, Current, and Future Natural Hazards in the West

Western Water Assessment (WWA), a NOAA RISA team, has just released the Utah Hazard Planning Tool, which provides resources about the historical incidence, current risk, and future projections of natural hazards in the state. The resource provides links to online tools and data, and brief descriptions of the information and how to access it. The information is specific to Utah, but is relevant to most of the West for information on avalanches, cold temperature extremes, dam failure, debris flow, drought, extreme heat, flooding and heavy rainfall, landslides, wildfire, wind events, and winter storms. A dashboard-style version of the tool and an in-depth summary of how climate change is impacting Utah's natural hazards will be available soon.
