Am I in a flood zone?
Here in Cocoa Beach we have 2 flood zones - "within the 100-year flood zone" and "outside the 100-year flood zone". These flood zones are based on elevation, water table elevation, soils and historical flooding information. On the barrier island, storm surge is most likely source of our flood hazards. The flood hazard lines are established by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and can be found on the FIRM (Flood Insurance Rate Map) maps. The FIRM maps of our area can be found at the City's Building and Stormwater Utility departments and are also on file at all libraries.
