|HERNANDO COUNTY, FLORIDA|
New County Flood Maps became effective February, 2, 2012
Hernando County and SWFWMD have undertaken a multi-year project to re-examine flood zones and develop detailed, digital flood hazard maps .
The new maps reflect current flood risks, replacing maps that are over 25 years old. The current effective FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for Hernando County is dated 04/17/1984 .
As a result of this project, property owners throughout Hernando County have up-to-date, reliable, Internet-accessible information about their flood risk — on a property-by-property basis. As a stakeholder in Hernando County's future, you should be aware of your property’s location and the flood risk for your area. This information allows you to plan for flood events and to take actions to limit your risk of loss.
