  • Flood Risk Review Meeting

On November 29, 2012, FEMA issued a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) that removed approximately 1,400 structures and properties from the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps for Denton County.

For those removed from the SFHA by the LOMA, Federal flood insurance requirements no longer apply, however flood risk still exists, and property owners may be eligible for a Preferred Risk Policy (PRP) at a lower rate. If you were removed from the SFHA by the LOMA, you should provide a copy of the letter to your lender and discuss PRP flood insurance options with your insurance agent.
