FEMA to Offer Info Regarding Flood Maps

Recently the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) released redrawn flood zone maps in Essex County, which could effectively raise the flood insurance rates for many households, and lower the value of homes within flood zones.  In order to hear the concerns and comments of those affected, FEMA will be hosting an open meeting from 3:00-8:00pm tonight in Lynn.

FEMA officials will be on hand to speak with individuals one-on-one, locate properties on the maps, and discuss flood insurance premiums.  At approximately 6:00pm FEMA officials will also offer a presentation of the redrawn maps.

Who: FEMA to discuss flood maps

When: Tonight from 3:00pm-8:00pm

Where: Lynn Municipal Auditorium, 3 City Hall Square, Lynn, MA.
