Preliminary revised coastal Flood Insurance Rate Maps issued for Hernando County

(Brooksville, FL) The Hernando County Zoning Department announces that the preliminary revised coastal Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Hernando County have been issued. These preliminary FIRMs were developed through a partnership between the Hernando County community and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. They are based on updated modeling data and show coastal flood hazards more accurately than previously adopted maps.
 
Changes in the flood zones shown on the FIRM may affect whether flood insurance is required and the cost of flood insurance premiums once the final FIRMs have been adopted. However, the preliminary FIRM will not change your current flood insurance premium. Your premium will continue to be based on the official FIRM currently in effect for your community.
