Find Your Flood Map

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) is a national FEMA program that works with states, tribes, territories and local communities to evaluate and better understand their current flood risk, as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future risk.

Flood Risk "Open Houses"

Updating flood maps can be a multi-year effort and providing community review of the maps before they go effective is an important part of the process.

FEMA works with communities to provide information and resources online to view the preliminary flood insurance rate maps. It’s important for property owners to understand options if they need to consider flood insurance, or if they disagree with the maps.
