Flood Maps: What Communities Need to Know
Record-breaking rain inundated 20 parishes in southeastern Louisiana in August 2016, resulting in 13 deaths across the state, 60,000 damaged homes, and an estimated $30 million in flood costs so far. The devastating flood in Louisiana is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago.
 
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), an estimated 42 percent of homes in high-risk areas have flood insurance. Only 12.5 percent of homeowners in low and moderate-risk zones do. Unfortunately, many of the areas hit hard by record rainfall were not considered at high-risk for flooding.
