McIntosh County’s flood insurance rate map update is nearing completion. The new maps will provide McIntosh County with more accurate flood risk information that can help local officials and residents make informed decisions about reducing flood risks and purchasing flood insurance.

New flood maps have been developed for LaMoure County, City of Dickey, City of Edgeley, City of LaMoure, City of Marion, Township of Grand Rapids, City of Berlin, City of Jud, City of Kulm, and the City of Verona. If residents or businesses feel there is an error in the map, they have a 90-day period to provide scientific or engineering data.

Preparedness Tips

Floods happen in North Dakota not only during spring runoff but can occur year-round. Summer thunderstorms producing heavy rain can result in localized flooding that affect a smaller area. A few inches of water in a 1,000-square foot home could cost more than $10,000 in repairs and replacement of personal possessions and homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover most floods. Remember it does not take a lot of water to cause a lot of damage. Learn more about protecting your home or business with flood insurance.
