If you are planning to purchase or update your private property insurance flood coverage, or just want a better understanding of your flood exposure, obtaining the most up to date flood map for your area is the place to start. It is important to note that there are many times when a building can experience flood damage even if it is not located within a designated flood prone area. Along with a copy of the flood map, it is best to get an understanding of the surrounding area to fully understand your risk. Community Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) are available through the FEMA Map Service Center or you can view a PDF image of the current FIRMS at the links below. You can also view the current flood zone your property is located in by clicking the “Flood Maps” tab, or the link below, and searching your address.
