The Bennington County maps showing Special Flood Hazard Areas will officially change on December 2, 2015. Two open house events are scheduled for people that want to learn more about flood risk, flood insurance and the effect of the map update.
There will be two open house events next week as follows:
At these events you can meet one-on-one with Federal and State officials to identify if your building is in a Special Flood Hazard Area. FEMA insurance specialists will be on hand to discuss flood insurance requirements and opportunities to make your building safer and less costly to insure.
Getting flood insurance now, before the map change to "grandfather the old zone" may be very important where the old maps show a building to be at low risk and the new map shows it in a high risk area.
