Post-Matthew Imagery Available from NOAA and a new viewer by NC OneMap provides easy viewing

The real damage from Hurricane Matthew is being realized long after its departure from North Carolina. NOAA is collecting imagery to assist in damage assessment and recovery efforts. NC OneMap is also providing the latest pre-event imagery for the area, updated parcels for several counties in the affected region, and a Hurricane Matthew online viewer that combines all this information for easy viewing.

What Data Is Available?

NOAA Imagery
The entire coast of North Carolina was flown the day after Matthew moved out to sea. Oblique imagery was captured on October 9th (Cape Lookout and points south) and 10th (Cape Lookout, NC to Cape Henry, VA).

Areas that have been identified by FEMA are being collected for inland areas. Imagery was collected October 11th for areas in and around Rocky Mount, Smithfield, Fayetteville, and Lumberton. There are also plans to collect imagery on October 14th for several additional areas.

NC OneMap pre-event imagery and parcels
NC OneMap contains services for the most recent orthoimagery for the region. Imagery collected in early 2016 is available for 27 counties along the coast. Imagery collected in 2013 is also available (service or download) for areas further inland. In addition, parcel ownership information is available for all affected counties (service and download).
