HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
Highlands County flood maps are out dated and no longer represent the current flood risks. Using the latest mapping technology and more up-to-date data, new flood maps are being prepared that present a picture of the County’s current flood risks. Consequently, your property’s level of flood risk may have changed.
- Property not currently within a high-risk flood hazard area may now be in a high-risk hazard flood area.
- Property previously in a high-risk flood hazard area may no longer be in a high-risk hazard flood area.
- Property previously in a high-risk flood hazard area may remain in a high-risk hazard flood area.
