Flood Map Changes
November 20, 2013
In compliance with the Biggert-Waters National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012, FEMA has released updated flood zone maps adding approximately 660 Revere residences to the flood zone and removing approximately 30.
The flood maps are available at City Hall or online at the FEMA Map Service Center at http://hazards.fema.gov/femaportal/prelimdownload/. If you choose to review online, you will then have to select the State and County to find the appropriate map. We urge those residents who believe or may suspect that they are in a flood zone to review the maps as there will be a 90 day comment/appeal period. Many property owners will find that their risk of flooding is higher or lower than they thought. If the risk level has changed, the requirement to carry flood insurance may have changed also.
