The National Risk Index is easy to use and provides an at-a-glance overview of multiple natural hazard risk factors.
From the FEMA NRI site "The National Risk Index identifies a community's risk to natural hazards. Community risk in The Index is a combination of several factors, including the expected annual dollar loss related to building value, population, or agriculture value due to a natural hazard; social vulnerability, represents the susceptibility of social groups to the adverse impacts of natural hazards; and community resilience, measures the ability of a community to prepare for anticipated natural hazards, adapt to changing conditions, and withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions."
