FEMA Updating Floodplain Maps in Manistee County

Due to proposed flood map remapping in Manistee County by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), homeowners who were not previously in a floodplain might be in one now.  It's safe to assume other counties will also be remapping.  Homeowners that will be included in the new map should immediately contact their insurance agent.  It may be required to get flood insurance as part of the process for obtaining a loan for shoreline protection.  As noted in the article, flood insurance is mandated if your property is included in the flood zone map.  Read the article:
