These tables include the sources and locations of the flood hazard information available for Louisiana, sorted by county and community.
The Available Flood Hazard Information (AFHI) tables are produced quarterly and may be issued intermediately in response to a Federal Disaster Declaration. FEMA provides these AFHI tables to allow access to all available flood hazard information within the FEMA flood mapping program, allowing communities, state, and federal entities access to all available data. The tables provide resources and links for ease of access. The tables document dates and locations of all Effective, Preliminary and Work Map data available and is searchable by community and parish name.
The most recent AFHI table is dated: July 31, 2023
Local building and permitting requirements vary by community and are based on local ordinances. Communities should be consulted to identify higher standards that may also need to be taken into account for building or recovery efforts.
