National Flood Insurance Program Community Rating System Special Hazards Supplement to the CRS Coordinator’s Manual
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and many communities in the United States have long recognized that the mapping and minimum regulatory standards of the NFIP do not adequately address all of the flood problems in the country. In particular, a number of “special” flood hazards deserve attention. They include ice jam flooding, flooding adjacent to closed basin lakes, mudflow hazards, flooding affected by land subsidence, uncertain flow path flood hazards, coastal erosion, and tsunamis. This publication discusses the credits provided by the CRS for mapping and management of the first five of these hazards [coastal flood hazards are addressed in the publication CRS Credit for Management of Coastal Erosion Hazards, and tsunami hazards are addressed in the publication CRS Credit for Management of Tsunami Hazards].
