Get real-time flooding updates with this new partnership

Real-time flooding updates just got easier thanks to Norfolk’s partnership with RISE, climate tech FloodMapp and Waze! FloodMapp is testing the integration of their flood forecast technology with Waze’s navigation app here in Norfolk.

What’s this mean for Waze users? Drivers receive pop-up icons and audio alerts to warn them of flooded streets along their route – to help avoid property and life-threatening hazards. Drivers can also confirm flooding in the app with a “thumbs up” to help validate FloodMapp’s technology and improve the accuracy of future Waze alerts.
