Preliminary Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps
FEMA has sent Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps for the City of Pampa and citizens to review and comment. The period to appeal ends January 20, 2010. Any appeal needs to be submitted through the City of Pampa Engineering Department prior to December 31, 2009 to allow adequate time for the City to review and submit to FEMA.
Updating these maps will provide the City of Pampa, as well as property owners, with a more reliable picture of current flood risks from the 1% chance storm per year (FEMA Zone A, otherwise known as the 100-year storm). Property owners need to know their flood risk in order to make informed decision about protecting their property investment.
For more information, please contact the City of Pampa Engineering Department at 200 W. Foster, Pampa, TX.
