At this location, a hundred year flood would reach a height of 18.72' at the gage. This results in 1.55' of water at the property.


How does this compare to FEMA?

FEMA's flood maps show a 100 year flood zone (dark blue) and a 500 year flood zone (bright yellow). The 100 year flood zone is considered to be a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and requires the purchase of flood insurance. The 100 year flood correlates to a 1% chance of flood in a year. The 500-year flood zone correlates to a 0.2% chance of flood in a given year.
