Revised Nemaha County Flood Insurance Rate Maps Likely to Become Effective in Early 2021
Representatives of the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources (NDR) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) met with Nemaha County property owners Wednesday, Sept. 25.
The open house at the Auburn Senior Center allowed property owners to learn whether their ground is in the flood plain, said Katie Ringland. She is chief of the floodplain management section with DNR. Landowners were able to view preliminary maps. NDR representatives were also able to pull up maps on computers allowing attendees to obtain flood insurance rate estimates, notes Chuck Chase. He is National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) specialist and outreach coordinator with NDR.
FEMA will be issuing new Flood Insurance Rate Maps with updated floodplain boundaries.
