NEW ORLEANS – (RealEstateRama) — Mayor Mitch Landrieu will join City Officials to remind residents of the updates to the new FEMA flood insurance rates that go into effect for New Orleans this Friday, Sept. 30, 2016.

The new FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) are available online external link where residents can view information about their property by navigating to their state, parish and local address.

Due to significant improvements in drainage and flood protection, more than 53 percent of all properties in New Orleans were removed from Special Flood Hazard Areas (“A” zones”) and as a result, will benefit from more affordable flood insurance. Under the new FIRMS, many homeowners will be eligible for a significantly lower flood insurance rate.
