Updated preliminary flood maps are now available for Escambia County on the Northwest Florida Water Management District's flood information portal, which provides flood data to Northwest Florida residents for informational purposes only.
To check the proposed flood zone of a property, click on the Escambia County map and the flood information portal will open up to search for a property by address. The "effective flood zone" is the current information and "preliminary flood zone" is what is proposed. Citizens are encouraged to preview the maps online.
Flood Risk Open House meetings for the public will be coordinated by FEMA in the community during the month of April, providing residents an opportunity to view the maps and to speak one-on-one with specialists about topics such as flood zones, base flood elevations, flood insurance, the appeals process, mitigation grants and building requirements. Attending specialists will include representatives from various divisions of NWFWMD and FEMA.
Once the dates and locations for the open house are finalized, the NWFWMD will publish the information in the Coastal Panhandle Project Schedule page.
Project schedule page dates are planned and may be subject to change. Please revisit the page for future schedule updates.
