How the COVID-19 Pandemic Has Changed Schools and Education in Lasting Ways FHA are defined as the area that will be inundated by the flood event having a 1-percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year.

The areas of minimal flood hazard, which are the areas outside the FHA and higher than the elevation of the 0.2-percent-annual-chance flood, are labeled Zone C or Zone (unshaded). The FHA designation is important because it is the basis for floodplain management regulations for communities across the country and because it decides whether a home is required to have flood insurance or not.

An Areas subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event generally determined using approximate methodologies. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements and floodplain management standards apply.

AE, A1-A30 Areas subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event determined by detailed methods. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements and floodplain management standards apply.

Base Flood Elevations (Bees) derived from detailed hydraulic analyses are shown in this zone. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements and floodplain management standards apply.

AO Areas subject to inundation by 1-percent-annual-chance shallow flooding, usually sheet flow on sloping terrain, where average depths are between one and three feet. Average flood depths derived from detailed hydraulic analyses are shown in this zone.

Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements and floodplain management standards apply. These are areas of special flood hazard where enough progress has been made on the construction of a protection system, such as dikes, dams, and levees, to consider it complete for insurance rating purposes.

V Areas along coasts are subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event with additional hazards associated with storm-induced waves. VE, V1-V30 Areas subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event with additional hazards due to storm-induced velocity wave action.

Base Flood Elevations (Bees) derived from detailed hydraulic analyses are shown. Firms are using historical flow data from river and tidal gauges but do not account for current or future environmental changes.

When presented with additional evidence, lenders will update their flood risk documents accordingly. Before you enter the property information, you should see the current turnaround time (in business hours).

This is the time it will take to process and return your order based on demand. Keep in mind, we manually research each flood determination and work with our customers to answer any questions they may have.

We then send you the report and determination by email in the time quoted. A FIRM is a flood map created by the FIP for floodplain management and insurance purposes.

As a property owner/renter, you can use this map to get a reliable indication of what flood zone you’re in. Flooding is a fact of life along the Grand Strand that is often overlooked in the “Official Relocation Guides”.

Both storms produced an exceptionally high amount of rainfall over a very short period. Florence was by far the worse of the two but both caused significant flooding and damage to homes and neighborhoods throughout the area.

In addition, localized King Tide flooding occurs in some low-lying coastal areas such as Garden City and Cherry Grove. Before purchasing a home in Myrtle Beach or nearby you should research your flood zone.

If you’re getting a mortgage your lender will require flood insurance, or they may deny the loan outright. However, being in a flood prone zone will be an issue to potential buyers when you’re ready to sell the home in the future.

We have a lot Raised beach cottages and other homes in the area that are elevated on piers. You’ll see a lot of these in Surf side, Garden City, Cherry grove, right along the beaches and near the river or waterway.

Failure to meet this requirement could disqualify the home from the National Flood Insurance Program. You may come across an older “raised” beach home where the owner has enclosed the lower level and made it into additional living area.

The law now provides that lower levels must be used for parking and storage only and may not be enclosed so as to impede the flow of flood waters. There is a pending lawsuit in Surf side Beach where the town is demanding a new homeowner demolish the enclosed living space built by the previous owner.

So when buying a home on the Grand Strand make sure “flood mitigation” is part of your due diligence. Your Realtor, Your Lender, and your insurance agent will be invaluable in helping you avoid potential issues.

Steer clear of homes in high risk zones with enclosed lower levels. A flood map specialist and/or a certified floodplain manager manually research each property ensuring unmatched accuracy.

We supplement our determination with a FEMA Flood Zone Report (included) using the latest available aerial imagery as evidence. Structures located within the FHA have a 26-percent chance of flooding during the life of a standard 30-year mortgage.

Federal floodplain management regulations and mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply in these zones. Bees derived from detailed hydraulic analyses are shown in this zone.AO Areas subject to inundation by 1-percent-annual-chance shallow flooding (usually sheet flow on sloping terrain) where average depths are 1–3 feet.

These are areas of special flood hazard where enough progress has been made on the construction of a protection system, such as dikes, dams, and levees, to consider it complete for insurance rating purposes. Zone A99 may be used only when the flood protection system has reached specified statutory progress toward completion.

Structures located within the CHH have a 26-percent chance of flooding during the life of a standard 30-year mortgage. Federal floodplain management regulations and mandatory purchase requirements apply in these zones.

ZONE DESCRIPTIONVAreas along coasts subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event with additional hazards associated with storm-induced waves. Bees derived from detailed hydraulic coastal analyses are shown within these zones.

However, buildings in these zones could be flooded by severe, concentrated rainfall coupled with inadequate local drainage systems. Local stormwater drainage systems are not normally considered in a community’s flood insurance study.

The failure of a local drainage system can create areas of high flood risk within these zones. No mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply, but coverage is available in participating communities.

Mortgage companies are required to determine if a property they are financing is located within the 1% annual chance floodplain (any zone designation beginning with the letter A). If so the mortgage company can require the buyer to obtain flood insurance.

These maps include revisions to Big & Little Cottonwood Creek Flood Zones as well as new Detailed floodplain Information for the Big & Little Willow Creek Flood Zones. FEMA does not allow local governments to make insurance determinations.
