After months of enduring Florida’s summer storms you may have been wondering whether you are in a flood zone or in an unfortunate circumstance you may have found out the hard way. However, no more guessing and no more surprises. Palm Beach County is creating an online site where you can see if your home falls within a flood zone in seconds. This is a great resource to utilize when you are scouting potential properties to buy as well.
Due to recent reconstruction and the increase of new communities throughout West Palm County there has been a shift in zoning. New communities have been omitted from the flood zone because of the obligated drainage and elevation improvements prior to construction, while other existing properties have shifted into the zone. Which, for those of you moving to Palm Beach area, means it is crucial to double check the new maps for West Palm County to inform yourself about your future property and to be prepared.
