FEMA Flood Maps, Insurance and Information
Floods are one of the most common hazards in the United States. Flood effects can be local, impacting a neighborhood or community, or very large, affecting entire river basins and multiple states. Learn about flood events, how to prepare for a flood, and what to do during a flood to stay safe. Floods are the most common hazard in the U.S., and most homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flood damage. Everyone is at risk of flooding. Buy flood insurance. View Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) free online. FIRMs, as well as Letters of Map Revision (LOMRs), can also be purchased and downloaded.
