Water Damage Fort Lauderdale, Floods and Flood Zone Information
Photo of Car in Flood Water
One of the most-destructive effects of a hurricane is flooding.  Be that as it may, flooding is not covered by most mortgage holder’s insurance policies.  Numerous Fort Lauderdale occupants live in or close to a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), which is a zone where flooding may happen in the event of substantial precipitation, hurricane, or other natural disasters.  As a result, residents may choose or be obliged to obtain flood insurance, which is accessible to all residents as a result of the City’s participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

To help inhabitants save cash on their flood insurance premiums, the City of Fort Lauderdale takes part in NFIP’s voluntary Community Rating System (CRS), which recognizes communities whose efforts go past the NFIP’s minimum standards.  As a feature of the CRS program, the City executes and advertises public information and floodplain management exercises with respect to flood risks, flood insurance, and approaches to decrease flood damage.  In return, the NFIP offers property owners a discount on flood insurance premiums each year, which now reflects a 20% savings for Fort Lauderdale property owners.

Research the adoption process for New Flood Zone Maps for Broward County.
For additional data on the National Flood Insurance Program and the Community Rating System, visit floodsmart.gov or fema.gov.

FEMA Flood Zone Map, Elevation Certificates and Flood Insurance Rate Map
Fort Lauderdale occupants can find their FEMA Flood Zone utilizing the City’s online Property Information Reporter.  Just enter your property address in the fitting fields, and then click “Go.”  The Property Information Reporter will give you broad data about your property, including your flood zone assignment.

Occupants can get a copy of their property's Elevation Certificate from the Department of Sustainable Development.

The FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map in PDF format can be reviewed at http://www.fortlauderdale.gov.

Local Flood Hazard
We are entering the height of hurricane season, so we want to remind residents that, albeit 2012 was a mild storm season, the City did experience water damage / flooding as a consequence of overwhelming precipitation in June.  Right now is the time to get ready, if you haven’t already done so.

The City's located in a low, level topographical area. It encompasses 36 square miles and is encircled by water, which makes the City particularly prone to flooding. The City’s water bodies consist principally of navigable waterways and sensitive drainage basins, including the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, Middle River, C-13 East, C-12, and the New River Canal. In the occasion of a hurricane, tropical depression, rainstorm, high tide, storm surge, or other natural disaster, these waterways can cause flooding.

The lion’s share of the City's inhabitants live in or near a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), where flooding may happen. This implies that your property is in or close to the SFHA as mapped by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and is prone to flooding. To determine your flood zone, take a look at the FEMA flood zone map, also known as the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), available online or by calling (954) 828-5281.

See an online presentation about the impact of tidal flooding and how to prepare for them.
