Flood Insurance

Open House for Newly Revised Flood Insurance Maps
People who live in Palm Beach County and its municipalities are invited to look at newly revised preliminary digital flood insurance rate maps for the county at four public open houses during the week of [September 8th, 2014]. Flood maps show the extent to which areas are at risk for flooding, and are used to help determine flood insurance and building requirements.
 

Property Protection

There are various ways you can protect your property from flood damage.
If flooding is likely, and time permits, move essential items and furniture to the upper areas of your home. Keep materials like sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting, and lumber handy for emergency waterproofing. This action will help minimize the amount of property damage caused by floodwaters.
And always be sure that electrical panel boxes, water heaters, pool equipment, and washers/dryers are elevated or relocated to a location less likely to be flooded.
Retrofitting can also minimize damage from flood waters. This involves building flood walls, elevating the structure, etc. Information on retrofitting flood-prone structures is available in the West Palm Beach City Library and the Construction Services Department or visit the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA).
