Flood Maps are Changing...

What you Should Know   

 

FEMA National Flood Insurance Rate Map Revisions

A multi-year project to develop detailed, digital flood hazard maps is nearing completion. Preliminary maps have been released by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as of October 2, 2015, and will undergo a several-month review and comment period before their final adoption in October of 2016. The new maps reflect current flooding risks, replacing outdated maps that are up to 40 years old. Property owners throughout the City of Prescott and surrounding Unincorporated Yavapai County will have up-to-date, internet-accessible information about their flood risk available by following the property search instructions below.

Property Search Instructions

To search for your property you must first have Google Earth loaded on your computer or mobile device. If you do not have Google Earth, click on the download button below and follow the instructions.

Once you have Google Earth open, type the physical address of your property in the search bar located in the top left corner. Click search and Google Earth will zoom in on your property. If your property is located within a blue-colored area, you are potentially located within a flood risk area.
