FLOOD Zone Updates


Flooding is the number one natural disaster in this State. It is vital for property owners to understand their risk and take advantage of tools or programs available to them, including flood insurance, to help reduce flooding impacts. The new maps in Isle of Wight County and Town of Smithfield are an update of the existing FIRM, which dates back to 2002. The FIRM and the associated Flood Insurance Study (FIS) provide the basis for communicating and identifying risk and for floodplain management measures. Isle of Wight County is required to adopt updated maps to continue participating in the NFIP, which makes flood insurance available to the community. Learn More
