Is your house or property in a flood zone?


As stated by FEMA, flood zones are geographic areas that FEMA has defined according to varying levels of flood risk.   These zones are depicted on a community’s Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) or Flood Hazard Boundary Map.   Each zone reflects the severity or type of flooding in the area. For information on flood zones and to read more about low to high risk areas visit FEMA’s Web site

Floodsmart.gov is a resource that helps homeowners identify flood risk in their area.  Flood risk is based on a number of factors: rainfall, river-flow and tidal-surge data, topography, flood-control measures, and changes due to building and development.
