[Docket ID FEMA-2012-0003]

Changes in Flood Hazard Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Final Notice.


SUMMARY: New or modified Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations 
(BFEs), base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundaries 
or zone designations, and/or the regulatory floodway (hereinafter 
referred to as flood hazard determinations) as shown on the indicated 
Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) for each of the communities listed in the 
table below are finalized. Each LOMR revises the Flood Insurance Rate 
Maps (FIRMs), and in some cases the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) 
reports, currently in effect for the listed communities. The flood 
hazard determinations modified by each LOMR will be used to calculate 
flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and their contents.

DATES: The effective date for each LOMR is indicated in the table 

ADDRESSES: Each LOMR is available for inspection at both the respective 
Community Map Repository address listed in the table below and online 
through the FEMA Map Service Center at www.msc.fema.gov.

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) [email protected]; or visit the FEMA Map Information 
eXchange (FMIX) online at www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) makes the final flood hazard determinations as shown in the 
LOMRs for each community listed in the table below. Notice of these 
modified flood hazard determinations has been published in newspapers 
of local circulation and ninety (90) days have elapsed since that 
publication. The Deputy Associate Administrator for Mitigation has 
resolved any appeals resulting from this notification.
    The modified flood hazard determinations are made pursuant to 
section 206 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.
    For rating purposes, the currently effective community number is 
shown and must be used for all new policies and renewals.
    The new or modified flood hazard determinations are the basis for 
the floodplain management measures that the community is required 
either to adopt or to show evidence of being already in effect in order 
to remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance 
Program (NFIP).
    These new or modified 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.
    These new or modified flood hazard determinations are used to meet 
the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and also are used to 
calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new 
buildings, and for the contents in those buildings. The changes in 
flood hazard determinations are in accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.
    Interested lessees and owners of real property are encouraged to 
review the final flood hazard information available at the address 
cited below for each community or online through the FEMA Map Service 
Center at www.msc.fema.gov.
