The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) launched a new data visualization tool that enables users to see when and where disaster declarations have occurred across the country. As hurricane season kicks off, the tool helps provide important information about the history of hurricanes and other disasters in their communities and what residents can do to prepare.

The data visualization tool is accessible at www.fema.gov/data-visualization and allows users to view and interact with a wide array of FEMA data. "We have a wealth of data that can be of great use to the public," said FEMA's Deputy Administrator of Protection and National Preparedness Tim Manning. "By providing this information in a way that is visual and easy to understand, people will be moved to action to prepare their families and communities."
