New Flood Maps Have Now Taken Effect

As of Aug. 28, Hillsborough County's new flood maps have become official for flood insurance and development purposes. This process of updating the County's new flood maps, which has been going on for the past ten years, is part of a required update of flood maps across the United States. The last time the maps were formally updated in Hillsborough County was 1992 and some parts of the County have not been updated since 1980. In all, approximately 18,000 properties moved into the high-risk flood zone for the first time and approximately 17,000 properties moved out of the high-risk flood zone. With these updates, more than 78,000 properties in Hillsborough County are now in the high-risk flood zone.
