Proposed Changes to Coastal FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps Now Available for Review
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for the coastal areas of the Town of South Kingstown that will become effective in July 2013. Map changes are based on new studies and more accurate elevation data. Fourteen of the 31 FIRM panels which cover areas along the shoreline and coastal salt ponds in the Town are impacted. These changes can affect the amount and type of federal flood insurance property owners in these areas are required to carry. Property owners are encouraged to review the proposed flood maps to learn about your flood risk and to identify any concerns or questions. Click here for more information.
