Appeal period begins: debated flood ins. maps




From an article in the Coastal Review Online but also found in the OBX Voice: https://outerbanksvoice.com/2017/08/18/appeal-period-begins-for-debated-flood-insurance-maps/

"A 90-day appeal period began this week in Dare and other coastal counties for proposed new National Flood Insurance Program rate maps, which officials say provide greater accuracy for determining premiums...

During the period, community officials and property owners can formally object to information on the preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map, or FIRM. Dare County and several towns have already raised questions about the map, including whether lower risks shown in oceanfront areas are accurate...

No consideration was given to the affects of sea-level rise..." Fish

Worth reading, in my opinion.
