[Docket ID FEMA-2013-0002: Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA-B-1295]


Changes in Flood Hazard Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice lists communities where the addition or 
modification of Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), base flood depths, 
Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundaries or zone designations, or 
the regulatory floodway (hereinafter referred to as flood hazard 
determinations), as shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and 
where applicable, in the supporting Flood Insurance Study (FIS) 
reports, prepared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for 
each community, is appropriate because of new scientific or technical 
data. The FIRM, and where applicable, portions of the FIS report, have 
been revised to reflect these flood hazard determinations through 
issuance of a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), in accordance with Title 
44, part 65 of the Code of Federal Regulations (44 CFR part 65). The 
LOMR will be used by insurance agents and others to calculate 
appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the 
contents of those buildings. For rating purposes, the currently 
effective community number is shown in the table below and must be used 
for all new policies and renewals.

DATES: These flood hazard determinations will become effective on the 
dates listed in the table below and revise the FIRM panels and FIS 
report in effect prior to this determination for the listed 
communities.
    From the date of the second publication of notification of these 
changes in a newspaper of local circulation, any person has ninety (90) 
days in which to request through the community that the Deputy 
Associate Administrator for Mitigation reconsider the changes. The 
flood hazard determination information may be changed during the 90-day 
period.

ADDRESSES: The affected communities are listed in the table below. 
Revised flood hazard information for each community is available for 
inspection at both the online location and the respective community map 
repository address listed in the table below. Additionally, the current 
effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online 
through the FEMA Map Service Center at www.msc.fema.gov for comparison.
    Submit comments and/or appeals to the Chief Executive Officer of 
the community as listed in the table below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering 
Management Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, 
FEMA, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-4064, or 
(email) Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.dhs.gov; or visit the FEMA Map Information 
eXchange (FMIX) online at www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The specific flood hazard determinations are 
not described for each community in this notice. However, the online 
location and local community map repository address where the flood 
hazard determination information is available for inspection is 
provided.
    Any request for reconsideration of flood hazard determinations must 
be submitted to the Chief Executive Officer of the community as listed 
in the table below.
    The modifications are made pursuant to section 201 of the Flood 
Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, and are in accordance 
with the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq., 
and with 44 CFR part 65.
    The FIRM and FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management 
measures that the community is required either to adopt or to show 
evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified 
for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
    These flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are 
required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must 
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by 
other Federal, State, or regional entities. The flood hazard 
determinations are in accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.
    The affected communities are listed in the following table. Flood 
hazard determination information for each community is available for 
inspection at both the online location and the respective community map 
repository address listed in the table below. Additionally, the current 
effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online 
through the FEMA Map Service Center at www.msc.fema.gov for comparison.
