Tampa releases database to help users protect their homes

The new digital database will allow residents and builders to easily access individualized flood data and resources for their homes.

TAMPA – The city of Tampa is launching a new digital tool to help residents and builders access property warnings, flood risk information, building and insurance requirements, and other information and resources that could help save their lives and homes during storm season.

The new public portal will offer a user-friendly one-stop shop for residents seeking information about their properties' flood risk and resources to protect their assets. All users would need to do is go to visit and plug in their property address.

The portal will bring up the user's address and provide several relevant pieces of data, including property values, what flood zone their property is in, whether it requires flood insurance, and multiple other relevant pieces of data, including relevant property documents and what resources the property qualifies for.
