FEMA Releasing Preliminary Flood Elevation Maps
FEMA will release preliminary flood elevation maps for use in reconstruction after Sandy.
The Associated Press is reporting that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will release advisory base flood elevation maps on Saturday allowing property owners and builders in ten New Jersey counties to learn more about flood hazards in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
The maps provide depictions of flood hazards in Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Union counties.
The information recommends building elevations for use in reconstruction after Sandy. FEMA says the elevations will guide home and business owners through the recovery process and ensure stronger and safer rebuilding.
