How Do I Find Them?

You can view your flood map online at the FEMA Map Service Center. Flood maps are also kept on file at your local county courthouse, municipal office or library. Once you have located the maps for your area, be sure to record the panel number on each map should you need to obtain additional information from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 

To obtain a copy of the current flood map for a specific community, community status book and the Flood Insurance Manual, you can call FEMA's Map Service Center toll free at 1-800-358-9616 or write:  Map Service Center (MSC) PO Box 1038 Jessup, MD 20794-1038. If you cannot locate flood maps in your area or you are having difficulty determining which maps to order, contact the Map Service Center for a flood map index.
