The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region IV Office in Atlanta has undertaken a multiyear coastal flood risk study effort to better identify, quantify, and communicate the coastal flood hazards and associated risks in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and North and South Carolina and to produce updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). This effort is being undertaken as part of the FEMA Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) program.
The coastal flood risk study process consists of five phases:
Phase 1 – Kickoff and Discovery Meetings
Phase 2 and 3 – Technical Outreach Meetings
Phase 4 – Consultation Coordination Office Meetings and Flood Risk Open Houses
Phase 5 – Appeal/Compliance Periods and Resilience Meetings
