FEMA flood maps approval process under way

Brunswick County and 18 of its municipalities are working on approving Federal Emergency Management Agency flood insurance rate maps and associated ordinance changes.

FEMA first made Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps available in August 2014.

The maps show special flood hazard areas and the risk premium zones that provide a basis for establishing flood insurance coverage premium rates.

Public hearings for the rate maps were held in Brunswick County in 2015.
