FEMA Flood Zone Insurance!?
We just had the Fema maps drawn up last year and my street is in a flood plain area. However I am the only one that is directly in the Flood Plain Zone by only a few feet from a bird eye view. I have contacted my town and fema and it looks like I have to a get a surveyor to get an elevation plan done. (to complete my LOMA). Sad fact is I donÃ¯Â¿Â½t think I am going to be above (which would get me out of paying ins.) the established Base Flood Elevation which a nearby neighbor just had done for her property! I am wondering what my next step is going to be to try and convince FEMA (to lower the FBE) and my mortgage company that we are not in a flood zone! This area has never flooded for the last 100 plus years!
