Wakulla County residents are invited to attend an open house to view updated preliminary flood maps and learn more about their flood risk on Thursday, September 13, 2012 from 4pm to 7pm at the Wakulla County Commission Chambers, located at 29 Arran Road in Crawfordville.
Residents are encouraged to stop by at their convenience to meet with representatives from the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other state and federal agencies. These specialists will be available to talk about the preliminary flood maps, flood insurance, engineering and more. Local government officials will also be available to assist citizens.
Up-to-date flood hazard maps are an important tool that can help Floridians understand and prepare for flood risks. These maps are still preliminary and will become effective after a public comment period.
The preliminary maps are also available online at http://portal.nwfwmdfloodmaps.com. Please contact Elaine McKinnon at the NWFWMD at (850) 539-5999 ext. 221 for more information.
