How do I find out in which “flood hazard area” or “flood zone” my home is located?

On your property’s Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), the map will display the special flood hazard areas and the risk premium zones applicable to your community. Use the following methods to view your property or community’s flood risk:

  • Visit your Community Map Repository, which is usually maintained by the community floodplain administrator or officials at the planning and zoning office for a copy of your property’s FIRM panel
  • View and download the FIRM from the FEMA Flood Map Service Center
  • View and download the National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL) data using the FEMAGeoPortal. To learn more about the NFHL and how to use it, visit the National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL) web page
