This map will tell you if your house is in a flood zone

The last couple of weeks have been an intense mash-up of emotions as we all watched Hurricanes Harvey and Irma try to break Texas and Florida. With Hurricane Jose wandering the Atlantic as it decides on its final destination many people are wondering what will happen next.

Wanting to know how to find out if I live in a flood zone, I went to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website where I found this interactive map that allows users to look up specific addresses. When I punched in my information, I was shown a file with a PDF of a letter from FEMA to my town office that lists properties that are considered to be in a flood zone. Luckily, mine wasn’t listed.
