Mapping

Flood Insurance Rate Maps

Floodplain maps provide the basis for floodplain management, regulation, and insurance requirements by identifying flood-prone areas that may threaten life and property. Floodplain maps are reviewed and approved by FEMA. Once approved, the floodplain maps guide flood management programs, including floodplain regulation, safety, preservation, preparation and mitigation.

FEMA Map Service Center

The FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC) is the official public source for flood hazard information produced in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Use the MSC to find your official flood map, access a range of other flood hazard products, and take advantage of tools for better understanding flood risk.
