Flood Maps

A Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) is an Official map of a community on which FEMA has delineated the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), the Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), and the risk premium zones applicable to the community.

Through its Flood Hazard Mapping Program, FEMA identifies flood hazards, assesses flood risks and partners with states and communities to provide accurate flood hazard and risk data to guide them to mitigation actions. Flood Hazard Mapping is an important part of the National Flood Insurance Program, as it is the basis of the NFIP regulations and flood insurance requirements. FEMA maintains and updates data through Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and risk assessments. FIRMs include statistical information such as data for river flow, storm tides, hydrologic / hydraulic analyses and rainfall and topographic surveys. FEMA uses the best available technical data to create the flood hazard maps that outline your community's different flood risk areas.

Update as of July 11, 2014:
Congressman Murphy provided this information as an update from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regarding refunds to eligible National Flood Insurance Policy (NFIP) holders who paid premiums in excess of subsidized insurance rates due to provisions contained in the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012.

As you know, the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIA) was recently signed into law and makes several important changes to the NFIP. One such change is the requirement that NFIP policy holders receive refunds if they paid premiums in excess of subsidized flood insurance rates for policies that were purchased or renewed after October 1, 2013.

Refunds will be issued directly to eligible policy holders beginning October 1, 2014, with all refunds being generated by December 31, 2014. Please note, that refunds will be issued automatically and no action needs to be taken on the part of policy holders.

For your reference, a copy the memorandum issued by FEMA, announcing the commencement of the refunds, as well as FEMA's underwriting guidelines which includes a question and answer section are in the links below.

If you or anyone in your community has questions or comments on this issue, don't hesitate to call Congressman Murphy's office at 412-344-5583. Also please feel free to share this information as well.
