North Carolina is prone to severe weather hazards, particularly from hurricanes and flooding. The North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program is a resource for communities and property owners, offering them information on flood hazard data and floodplain mapping. This information is invaluable in helping property owners make sound design decisions when rebuilding after a disaster or retrofitting current structures. Determine your flood risk and review North Carolina's Flood Insurance Rate Maps. Being informed and prepared will help protect lives and property the next time severe weather strikes.
