Final flood insurance rate maps are now available on Clark County’s website.
The maps, prepared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, identify local flood hazard zones, including “base flood” areas that have a 1 percent chance of being inundated in any year.
The maps indicate properties where mortgage lenders may require flood insurance and where floodplain development regulations may apply.
The maps can be found at: http://www.clark.wa.gov/publicworks/flood/insurance.html They take effect on Sept. 5.
