We have had a number of questions regarding the Preliminary Flood Maps, a few quick answers:
- The Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps go into effect in July 2014.
- If your property is in these new flood zones you should strongly consider getting flood insurance.
- If your property is in these new flood zones and you have a mortgage you will be required to get flood insurance by July 2014.
Now is the time to consider flood proofing your home. Flood proofing can reduce the overall cost of flood insurance.
