Western Washington University students mapped the city of Stanwood this week to determine which areas are vulnerable to flooding.

Using ground-level home elevation measurements, the students will build an online map, and Stanwood residents can see the flood risk to their homes.

Students will process the data during winter quarter, and the flood map should be available to the public by March 2018.
