ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) June 30, 2018
Wright Flood, the nation’s top provider of federal flood insurance, shares the latest flood map changes from FEMA. The report, dated June 20, states that three counties across the country implemented new flood maps in the month of May. It also highlights the 15 counties that issued LFDs, indicating that a new or updated Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) or Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) will become effective in six months and notifying the community that it must adopt a compliant floodplain management ordinance by the map effective date, to remain participants in good standing in the NFIP.
These changes could affect more than 4.1 million Americans across the United States. Wright Flood understands how challenging it can be to keep track of the constantly changing flood maps and is here to help with up to date information. To find out if your county will be affected, visit: https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/157028 and click on this month’s notice.
