Hazard Exposure Reporting and Analytics (HERA)

The Hazard Exposure Reporting and Analytics (HERA) application was developed to provide users with insight on potential population, economic, land cover, and infrastructure vulnerability resulting from a given hazard. Interactive maps and graphics allow users to examine hazard exposure for individual communities, to compare exposure for multiple communities and changes in hazard exposure.

New York Nowcast Beach Status

New York Nowcast predicts water quality conditions at select beach swimming areas in NY. The Nowcast estimates conditions by merging environment and climate data with variables measured at a beach by 8 AM each morning and entering them into a computer program which provides a probability from 1 to 100 as to whether or not the beach has exceeded the bathing-water standard of 235 units of E. coli.
