From the City of Eugene:
FEMA, in cooperation with the state of Oregon, Lane County, the city of Eugene, and other local communities, has updated flood maps to better show the risk of flooding in Lane County. To help inform the community, FEMA has put together a virtual resource. Residents can visit it online to learn more about this map update. You can view the virtual resource at: bit.ly/clmapupdate.
Through this virtual resource, property owners and community residents can learn about the flood mapping process and what the changes mean for them. They can also get information about the National Flood Insurance Program. Residents can learn who to contact if they need more support.
We encourage you to visit the virtual resource, review your flood risk, and ask questions via the contact information it provides. You can preview the Coast Fork and Middle Fork Willamette River map updates directly through the Flood Map Comparison Tool. You can also ask for a flood map for your property by emailing PropertyIDMap@starr-team.com.
Flooding is the most common and expensive natural disaster in the United States. Studies show that the high-risk areas on flood maps have a 26% chance of being flooded at some point during a 30-year mortgage. Learn more about the costs of flooding and flood insurance on the Flood Smart website at www.floodsmart.gov.
