FLOOD Zone Updates


Do you know your flood risk? Local and County officials are hosting a Coastal Flood Risk Open House to provide citizens in Isle of Wight County and Town of Smithfield with an opportunity to learn more about newly updated flood maps, known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). Both Isle of Wight County and Town of Smithfield officials, as well as FEMA representatives, will be on hand to answer citizens’ questions about the updated maps, the mapping process, flood risk, and flood insurance.

The Open House is scheduled for Monday, August 11, 2014 at The Smithfield Center from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Residents will be able to locate their property on the updated maps and view the changes as compared to the current FIRM. Once residents view this information, they can talk to members of the flood hazard mapping team, flood insurance specialists, and local, county, and State officials about the maps, the process, and flood insurance.
