US: The State Emergency Management Agency of Rhode Island has unveiled a new mapping tool that allows users to find out whether a given address is near a flood prone area or not.

The tool also allows the users to look in the neighborhood or any region of the state for flooding risk. It gives people an approximate idea about flood risk. However, the mapping tool is not designed for legal or engineering purposes. It is designed to help people at the time of buying property.
