Floodplain Maps and the Risk for Flooding

Floodplain maps are a helpful resource that alerts homeowners and commercial property owners to the potential danger of flooding before it happens.  These maps show areas that may be prone to flooding during periods of heavy or persistent rain.  However, a recent study shows that current Indiana floodplain maps may be outdated, leaving thousands of at-risk property owner unaware of the threat. According to this article from the Indy Star, “More than 282,500 Indiana homes, businesses and other structures are at substantial risk for flooding, about 67 percent more than the government currently estimates.”  Floodplain maps often rely on decades-old information, which does not reflect changes that naturally occur in weather patterns or building and urbanization. It is important to be sure you have the most up-to-date information for your area and consult with your insurance agent on necessary coverage.
