FEMA Map Service Center problems

Anybody else having trouble with the Map Service Center. When I search an address, I am not offered the button to create a FIRMette, and I can not get to any of the FIRM download pages. I've tried Firefox, Chrome, and Ye Olde Internet Explorer browsers. I sent an email to them to let them know something may be wonky.

I just went to the site to see if I get the same results as you.  It appears the site is not working.

The FEMA Google Earth app hasn't worked for several weeks.
I created a Firmette this morning by using the address function.

It was very very slow for me about a week ago.  I launched the search by address application.  Let it sit in the background appearing to do nothing for a very long time while I did other tasks.  I still remember roughly 1995 when Dad was telling me about this new OS “Windows”.  I could not comprehend how that would actually work, at the time.  Then after a while doing other work, I went back to the FEMA site and lo, behold, firmette.  Woila.

I just got a call from a FEMA rep. who said they've been working on Map Service Center website, and that it's up and running. I gave it a check, and it does indeed appear to be up and running well. 🤗

Can you post a link?

I searched and didn't see anything new...

But then, I probably don't know what I'm looking at

Nothing new. They just fixed whatever was discombobulating the existing web pages.

@chris-bouffard , site was way out of whack yesterday. I thought maybe more traffic because of hurricane related stuff.
