Know Your Flood Hazard

Floods and Flood Zones: which one are you in?

Be informed of your flood zone, potential risk of flooding and the hazards associated with it.

What are Flood Maps?

Flood maps provide flood risk information for a community. Any land area that may be impacted by floodwaters is identified as a floodplain on these maps.

A Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) identifies both the special flood hazard areas and the flood risk premium zones within the community.

  • Zones designated "A" - subject to rising water with moderate tidal flooding and moderate wind.
  • Zones designated "V" - subject to strong winds and waves more than 3 feet in addition to tidal flooding.
