New Texas Flood Maps

Are you in a high-risk flood zone? See you home on the newest FEMA Flood Maps. New Maps Effective April, 2014


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been working with county and municipal governments over the last several years to incorporate the best available data into new flood maps.

The new flood maps dictate the monthly premiums millions of American households pay for flood insurance. They are also designed to give homeowners and buyers the latest understanding of how likely their communities are to flood.

“FEMA is in the process of updating Flood Maps in every state,” says Bryan Baumann, senior mapping analyst at Second Look Flood. “Each year, thousands of homeowners that are wrongly placed in the high-risk flood zone, and those that should be there might not have adequate coverage when a flood does occur. Everyone should know about these updates.”

Regardless of flood zone, everyone should take steps to financially protect themselves from a flood disaster which affects far too many communities each year. The primary way to do this is by purchasing flood insurance. Since standard homeowner’s, business owner’s, and renter’s insurance doesn’t cover flood damage, flood insurance is an important consideration for everyone.

At Second Look Flood, expert mapping analysts manually research each property using multiple resources. An aerial overlay is constructed showing the property on the newest FEMA flood zone maps. Amendments are also identified, such as a Letter of Map Corrections (LOMC’s) – which are often missed by automated systems. “Every homebuyer and homeowner deserves the peace of mind of a well-trained mapping professional working on their behalf,” Baumann adds.
