Flood Mapping

There are several ways you can view FEMA's (Federal Emergency Management Agency) current flood maps:

1.  Visit FEMA's Flood Map Service Center.

2.  View a .pdf of the City-Wide Flood Map - Use the "+" and "-" buttons on your Adobe Acrobat toolbar to zoom in and out to the desired location.

3.  View .pdfs of individual Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) by panel #: 

4.  You may also view both 1985 FIRMs and 2012 FIRMs using MIMAP. Search for the property by address, name, or map/lot then select "FIRM ORIGINAL" or "FIRM 2012 - NEW" tabs to compare flood zones. Zones are listed in the "Legend" tab.
