Weathering flood map changes
When it comes to flood zone remapping, there’s growing concern that many homeowners are living unaware, unprepared and unprotected. While flood map changes may mean considerably lower flood insurance premiums for many property owners that have been moved out of a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), the resounding message from FEMA is: The risk is reduced, not removed. Even though your flood zone has changed, you are still at risk. You are still financially vulnerable to flood damage.
As flood maps are updated, being aware of Newly Mapped changes can help property owners know their risk, know their options and make more informed decisions in safeguarding against catastrophic financial loss.
