I had someone ask me recently if there were any available source, maps, reports indicating the dates of flood incidents in New Orleans from May to October (2015 – 2018). Does anyone know where to look for historic flooding maps and/or data?

@sagarpreet, this might be interesting to add to https://github.com/publiclab/leaflet-environmental-layers if folks have some good data sources!

For Surge data, you can SURGEDAT for the Whole Gulf of Mexico. http://surge.srcc.lsu.edu/

Ezra Boyd would have known the answer to this in detail, I do miss him.

For New Orleans, i think the sustainable cities data has the 10 yr rain flood...
