Same here. As of Sept. 23rd, 2022, 8:00 CST, this page is not working. The elevations were 86 feet for mountains, lakes, and flat lands. The button is also missing after entering the zip code. On 23/09/2022

Hi Jo, The functionally may not have been updated, but elevations do not change significantly over time.

As far as I can tell the last version this was updated was in the year 2019. So I do believe this page is not worth using as far as real time reference in September 2022.

No matter where I click, the elevation heights are all the same. From mountain ranges to flood plains. How do I determine which is correct?

Does NOT work. I enter my address and hit ENTER - no button to Search.
