How Frequently are Flood Maps Updated?

The answer is there’s no single answer. Although FEMA is supposed to update their flood maps regularly, that rarely happens. As a result, some active flood maps are 20 or even 30 years old. Some of the factors that get in the way of FEMA’s attempts to update their flood maps include:

1) Budgetary challenges;

2) The logistics of updating the thousands of flood maps it takes to identify the floodplains in each community of the US; and

3) Resistance from community officials.

When a flood map is updated, FEMA is required to allow the local community the opportunity to review the proposed changes and to invite the public to review them as well. If the local community challenges the updates, perhaps based on information received from an engineering firm they’ve hired, the process is delayed significantly.

So know you know.  Want to save money on your flood insurance - call 740-992-6677   or email us      or see our website
