Flood Zones Info

Starting around 2000, FEMA has been updating flood zone maps around the country to a new version called Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM). In Florida, all counties have been updated.

Below is more information about flood zone maps. In addition, the three different versions of flood zones maps are explained.

Flood Zone Definitions

ZoneDescription
V100-year floodplain with wave action, no BFEs determined.
VE100-year floodplain with wave action, with BFEs determined.
A100-year floodplain, no BFEs determined.
AE and A1-30100-year floodplain, with BFEs determined.
AH100-year floodplain, with ponding, with BFEs determined.
AO100-year floodplain, with sheet flow, with BFEs determined.
AR100-year floodplain, previously protected by flood control structures and being restored.
A99100-year floodplain, that will be protected by a flood control project under construction.
IN100-year floodplain, no BFEs determined.
B, X500500-year floodplain (0.2% annual chance of flooding)
C, XOutside 100-year and 500-year floodplain.
D, UNDESPossible but undetermined flood hazards.
ANIArea Not Included in any flood study.


Table notes:

  • BFE = Base Flood Elevation.
  • 100-year floodplain means there is a 1% annual chance of flooding at or above the base elevation.
  • FEMA states there is a 26% chance of flooding over the life of a 30 year mortgage for structures within the 100-year floodplain.
