Flooding can be a costly disaster in the County of Prince George. The risk for flooding changes over time due to erosion, land use, weather events and other factors. The likelihood of inland, riverine and coastal flooding has changed along with these factors. The risk for flooding can vary within the same neighborhood and even property to property. Knowing your flood risk is the first step to flood protection.
If you have a mortgage from a federally regulated lender and the building(s) on this parcel are within a Special Flood Hazard Area, then by federal law, your lender must require you to carry flood insurance. Flood insurance is available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a federally underwritten program provided by nearly 100 insurance companies and written through licensed insurance agents.
