Update Flood Hazard Data/Maps – Public Meeting

RALEIGH – On Tuesday August 4, residents and business leaders in Vance County and its communities will be able to review and discuss the latest flood hazard and flood risk data.

Now available digitally, preliminary flood hazard information can be layered on top of the county’s parcel data so property owners can better determine potential risks to their land. The digital flood maps will be shown from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Perry Memorial Library Farm Bureau Room located at 205 Breckenridge St

Henderson, NC 27536 Residents also can access the flood hazard data online at  Digital flood hazard data also can be viewed by calling the Vance County Planning Department at (252) 738-2080 or the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program (NCFMP) at (919) 715-5711.   The August 4th public meeting provides an opportunity for residents to see the results of the revised studies and new flood hazard areas.  County and municipal employees will be on hand to help residents locate particular properties from the flood hazard layer and determine their level of flood risk.  Representatives from the NCFMP will also be available to answer questions about the flood hazard update process, flood insurance coverage and floodplain management.  Attendees also may see a demonstration of the North Carolina Flood Risk Information System.

The North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program (NCFMP) was established in 2000 with a mandate to update flood hazard data for all 100 counties. Through a partnership with FEMA, the state was charged with creating and maintaining the Flood Insurance Study for all North Carolina communities.  Since 2003 the NCFMP has analyzed, updated and digitized the flood hazard data for all 100 counties and associated communities in North Carolina. This preliminary flood hazard data was developed based on local community requests for new flood hazard risk studies for the updated streams.  Please note that only those portions of the revised streams have been updated. Therefore, some communities in the county will not have new flood hazard data, although adjacent counties may have some updates due to the seamless statewide format for the mapping program.
