KNOW YOUR ZONE!
During any Hurricane Season, it is vital that Oldsmar residents understand that there are two types of zones in ‘storm’ conversations.
Your FLOOD ZONE is mapped by FEMA for use in the National Flood Insurance Program. Each flood zone designation, REPRESENTED BY A LETTER OR LETTERS, tells homeowners what the risk is for flooding at their property, REGARDLESS of the cause.
Your EVACUATION ZONE is based on HURRICANE SURGE zones determined by the National Hurricane Center using ground elevation & the area’s vulnerability to storm surge. These zones ARE MARKED FROM A THROUGH E.
