Wake County FEMA Map Update Page

As of July 1, 2016

Preliminary Wake County Floodplain Maps, which will replace the current Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) effective date May 2, 2006, are currently available for review. Public meetings were held in fall 2015. Beginning July 6, 2016, the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program (NCFMP) will initiate a 90-day appeal period for these maps. The public can then formally comment or appeal the preliminary maps by contacting Dan Clinton, Stormwater Engineer.  

Background

The North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program (NCFMP) in coordination with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued preliminary FIRM for Wake County. These revised maps are slated to replace the current effective May 2, 2006 maps once valid appeals have been addressed.

View the FIRM maps. To view the changes in the Wake County maps since the last FIRM was published, on the website, toggle between the Effective and Preliminary FIRM layers and then turn on the “Changes since last FIRM” layer. There is a color coded map legend that provides information on the maps.
