Refugio County asks for input in preliminary flood maps
Sept. 23, 2013 at 4:23 a.m.
Residents of Refugio County are encouraged to provide comments on preliminary flood maps for the incorporated and unincorporated cities of the county between Thursday and Dec. 24.
The county and the Federal Emergency Management Agency would like homeowners, renters and business owners to check the maps to understand the flood risks of their areas.
If there are disagreements with the maps, an appeal may be filed. Those who have not been able to participate in flood insurance meetings or review the flood maps should contact their county or community floodplain administrator.
Comments and appeals should be sent to FEMA through the local floodplain administrator.
Once all comments and appeals are resolved, FEMA will notify communities of the date the final maps will go into effect.
