Thousands of property owners in one Florida County will be in newly created flood hazard zones later this year, and that means they’ll be required to buy flood insurance for the first time.

The Palm Beach Post reports the Federal Emergency Management Agency has finalized Palm Beach County’s new flood hazard zone maps.

Many won’t like what they find.

Up to 50,839 properties will be newly designated in high-risk flood zones when the maps become official in two months, according to figures compiled by the county. Many homeowners in those zones who have federally backed mortgages will be required to buy flood insurance.

Many properties weren’t developed when the county’s current flood map was created in 1989, so they didn’t have flood-risk classification and owners didn’t have to buy insurance.

Please be sure to call Lee Gorodetsky  at -1-954-351-1960 for quotes on Home, Auto, Flood, Private Flood, Business & Commercial & Life & Financial products as well. The new Maps are still Preliminary and could be updated again. The new changes will start in September if all goes as planned  and about 76,000 homes will need to start to have a new Flood Policy where one was not needed before. Most people do not understand the risk of Flood, but ask people in N.J. from Hurricane Sandy and they will tell you otherwise. Please be prepared and check your information now. You can call Lee at  Acentria Insurance for a class at your office soon to review the maps with your agents. Private Flood can help, please ask me about it!!
