Flood Plain Management

Floods are the most common and most destructive natural disaster in the United States. Ninety percent of all natural disasters involve flooding, according to Floodsmart.gov. The damage from a flood is not covered under a standard homeowners policy. Flood insurance is a special policy that is federally backed by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and available for homeowners, renters and businesses.

The NFIP allows property owners in participating communities to buy insurance to protect against flood losses. Participating communities are required to establish management regulations in order to reduce future flood damages. This insurance is intended to furnish as an insurance alternative to disaster assistance and reduces the rising costs of repairing damage to buildings and their contents caused by flood. A homeowner is able to purchase excess flood insurance, but they must be covered by NFIP flood insurance first.

The FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC) is the official public source for flood hazard information produced in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Use the MSC to find your official flood map, access a range of other flood hazard products, and take advantage of tools for better understanding flood risk.

Johnson County participates in the National Flood Insurance Program.  To find out if your home or the home your about to purchase is located in the flood plain area, click HERE!
