The Washington Compost this morning published an article on a cool new interactive map that Fairfax County has developed for residents to see whether they live in a flood plain.

First comments posted about the article: Where the !$#*%$ is the map?

Anyone?

The following map is helpful: you can see where Fairfax is flooded... with immigrants!

go to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/gisapps/pdfViewer/
and view the Stormwater FEMA-SFHA map, you'll need to find where on the map grid your street/house is on

the map for the street in the article is 59-1
