Flood Risk Open House set for next Wednesday
Officials representing the Mississippi Flood Map Modernization Initiative Team will host a Marshall County “Flood Risk Open House” from 4:30 p.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10, at the Eddie Lee Smith Multi-Purpose Center, 235 North Memphis Street, Holly Springs.
The general public is invited to find out more about floodplain management in their communities, which includes Holly Springs, Byhalia and Potts Camp.
The open house will provide the public with an opportunity to review the recently completed preliminary Flood Insurance Study and its accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) that include base flood information and identification of areas subject to flood hazards within the county. The maps for Marshall County and its incorporated communities are also available for viewing at the MDEQ web site at http://geology.deg.ms.gov/floodmaps/status.aspx?county=Marshall.
Local and state officials will be present to provide information about flood risks, flood insurance, floodplain development requirements, and the process used for floodplain mapping. Once the preliminary FIRMs become effective, these maps will be used by floodplain permit officials, builders and developers, lenders, realtors, insurance agents, and the general public to determine flood risk.
Property owners, realtors, lenders and insurance agents are encouraged to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about flood risk and hazard mitigation within your community.
