Flood Zones Palm Beach County

There was an article in today's Palm Beach Post front page on flood zones and the expansion of them by 50,000 homes.

For more information contact: Building Division 561-233-5100

For this first time since 1982 the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Palm Beach County have been revised by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The new FIRMs for Palm Beach County will go into effect on 10/5/2017.

To help you view the current and pending flood zone information for your property, Palm Beach County has created a Flood Zone Map Viewer Application! You can search by address and view the FIRMs for your property by visiting Flood Zones or look for the link on our homepage at

I just looked up my condo and I am not in the flood zone but 2/3rds of my building are. This will effect our insurance rate.
