Extent of available data.
This data layer depicts the Hazard Zones of the Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRM). It was created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. A DFIRM is used to identify areas where flood insurance is required for loans and communities need to administer flood plan regulations. Hazard Zones identify the flood risk of a particular area and inform the applicable insurance rates. This flood risk should be taken into consideration when making any land use or development decisions for the area.
