The City of Dubuque has received a draft Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) from FEMA that includes several new A zones.
The new DFIRM significantly expands the number of properties designated as being in a flood plain in the city limits. There are approximately 70 structures in the current flood zones. The proposed new A zones would include approximately 1,806 properties, with an estimated 1,741 structures.
We are interested to learn if any other cities or counties in Iowa are encountering similar changes in their DFIRMs with respect to new, substantial A zones.
If your DFIRM did not change, we'd like to know that, too.
We look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
