Hurricane Ivan Maps


Coastal flood inundation maps were created for the areas of Baldwin, Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties that were most severely impacted by Hurricane Ivan's storm surge. These maps also show high water marks surveyed after the storm, the limits of debris carried by the surge, and current FEMA flood map zones and elevations.
