Missoula County Homes at Risk in Flood and Wildfire Areas

These two slideshows and related information use Missoula County and Western Montana to show how many homes have been built in flood and wildfire hazard areas, which are vulnerable to larger and more frequent floods and fires.

Headwaters Economics has prepared two slideshows as part of our work with communities dealing with climate change adaptation.

These slideshows use Missoula County and Western Montana to illustrate the extent to which homes have been built into flood and wildfire hazard areas which are of particular concern since climate models predict larger and more frequent floods and fires throughout the northern Rockies.
