BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has completed its restudy for coastal Brevard County and released preliminary Flood Insurance Rate maps.

New storm surge modeling will result in changes to flood zone areas on the Barrier Island and Merritt Island. Some areas will have revised flood elevations, which will impact annual flood insurance premiums, both positively and negatively.

Some areas not currently in flood zones (Special Flood Hazard Areas) will change and be included, which will then require mandatory flood insurance for a mortgage.

The public is invited to view and comment on the preliminary maps and data by attending one of the upcoming FEMA Open House meetings:
