<HTML><FONT  SIZE=3 PTSIZE=10>If you are willing to wait, FEMA 273, 274,
275 and 276 are available FREE by calling the FEMA A Publications
Distribution Center, telephone 1-800-480-2520 or FAX<BR>
1-301-497-65378.  Also, be sure to order the NEHRP Maps 1997 that also
apply and should be used with FEMA 273 and ASCE/FEMA 273.<BR>
<BR>
If you want to download and print out ASCE/FEMA 273, (a Prestandard under
development by ASCE to be a future ASCE Standard) under the direction of
Degenkolb, you contact the Degenkolb web site:<BR>
<BR>
http://www.degenkolb.com/fema273/index.html<BR>
<BR>
The seismic hazard maps to be used with FEMA 273 and ASCE/FEMA 273 are the
same maps that are to be used with 1997 NEHRP Provisions and are referred
to as the 1997 NEHRP Maps (Seismic Hazard Map Package) distributed FREE by
the FEMA  Publication Distribution Center, telephone number
1-800-489-2520.<BR>
.<BR>
There is a major error in Seismological Research Letters, May/June 1999,
page 295 (published by the Seismological Society of America) which states,
INCORRECTLY,<BR>
that the seismic maps to be used with ASCE/FEMA 273 and FEMA 273 can be
found at the USGS web site: http://geohazards.cr.usgs/gov/eq/  This web
site presents the USGS Probabilistic Hazard Map information which is
different from the 1997 NEHRP "Design" Maps.<BR>

Jon Heintz is the Degenkolb ASCE/FEMA 273 Project Engineer.</HTML>
