Flood hazard maps, also called “Flood Insurance Rate Maps” or “FIRMs,” are used to determine the flood risk to your home or business. The inland high-risk zones will be labeled “A” or “AE”, and coastal high-risk zones that have additional risk from storm surge will be labeled “VE”.
A floodplain is the part of the land where water collects, pools, and flows during the course of natural events. Such areas are classified as Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA), and are located in a 100-year flood zone. The term "100-year flood" is a little confusing. It is the flood elevation that has a 1- percent chance of being equaled or exceeded each year; it is not the flood that will occur once every 100 years.
The likelihood of a flood occurring within a 100-year stretch of time is very, very high, but there’s no way to predict when the next flood will occur – or the one after that.
