The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been updating flood maps nationwide since 2003. Almost two-thirds of Broome County's flood hazards maps are more than 30 years old and no longer accurately reflect the county's risk for flooding. Storms in the region in 2006 underscored the need for updated flood maps. Changing topography, urban development and sprawl, loss of vegetation and an increase in impervious surface, as well as a longer record of flooding experience, all result in an increase in floodable areas.
