Flood zones are land areas identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Each area of land is mapped and labeled into a flood zone. FEMA flood maps include zones that are broken into several areas.
Keep in mind that EVERY property is located in a flood zone. It's just a matter of which flood zone you're in and whether or not there is any risk associated with being located in that zone. Working with a professional Land Surveyor is the key to attaining the proper information. You can visit www.FEMA.gov for more information regarding FEMA flood maps and flood zones.
