Hurricane Dorian and the Environmental Threats in its Path

September 4 2019

Envirosite Provides Environmental Data to Aid in Hurricane Dorian’s Recovery.

 

A targeted view of the Jacksonville coast and St. John’s River area
that are in potential storm surge flood areas.

We know that environmental data plays a critical role in assessing the potential environmental risks in the storm-impacted areas.  Here at Envirosite, we have access to expansive environmental and geospatial data sets to help aid environmental professionals and public officials. During catastrophic weather events, we believe it is our civic duty to provide free maps on the impacted areas.

Storm surges and heavy rain with flooding from Hurricane Dorian have the potential to impact areas from the Atlantic coast of Florida up to the coast of North Carolina where EPA regulated hazardous waste contamination exists or has historically existed.

These images show examples of potential and reported contaminated areas up the Florida coast from Daytona Beach to Jacksonville and a targeted scan of the Jacksonville coast and St. John’s River area that are in potential storm surge flood areas. Envirosite’s environmental hazards information for the affected areas in Hurricane Dorian’s path will be made available free on request.

 

Contaminated areas lining the Florida coast from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach.
