People are going to be shocked by new flood maps.
Many people who were not in any flood plain are going to be now in the 100 year flood plain.
Some of those that will be in the new 100 flood plain are in large new housing developments.

After Harvey, you should know whether you're in a flood plane or not.

Does anyone know where the most recent draft FEMA flood maps can be viewed? Online or at the Galv Engr office??
