Australia flood information portal launched

Australia: A new online flood risk information portal has been launched to assist the community, planners and insurers to access important flood information about their local area.

In launching the National Flood Risk Information Portal with Geoscience Australia, Attorney-General and Minister for Emergency Management Nicola Roxon and Minister for Resources and Energy Martin Ferguson said the Portal will be a critical tool in our disaster preparedness kit.

“The National Flood Risk Information Portal will be a valuable resource for helping communities better prepare for flood disasters,” Roxon said.

“Easy access to flood risk information will give communities and planners a better understanding of their exposure to floods, as well as assist insurers in developing fair and reasonable policies.”
