Useful Link: FEMA flood plane Maps

Recently, I’ve starting my home searching efforts and have found it quite useful to know more about the properties that I’m looking at to get a bigger picture of the location. One such piece of information is knowing where the local flood planes are so that you can judge the risk of having a flood damage your property.

The easiest source of this information is FEMA’s maps website. Go there and enter the address that you are looking at and you’ll be given access to a map system that will show you the flood planes local to that address. The website even lets you save a .pdf copy of the information you are looking for for future reference.
