Dear Prospective Tenant,
Boone, NC and much of surrounding areas sit in mountain valleys where much of the developed land is located in a flood zone and is subject to flooding in extreme weather events. Some of the many locations with flood plains include but are not limited to: areas near the Boone Mall, Walmart, Hospital, and Peacock Parking lot on campus.
Part or all of the premises of the dwelling unit you plan to rent, Complex Name & Address shown below, is located within the flood zone shown below.
FEMA Flood Zone Designations:
|Flood Hazard||Flood Zone Designation|
|100-Year ( 1-percent annual chance) flood AKA Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA)||Zone AE Floodplain|
|500-Year flood (areas between the limits of the 1-percent and the 0.2-percent-annual-chance of flood)||Zone X (Shaded)|
|Areas outside the 100-year and 500-year flood zones (areas of minimal flood hazard)||Zone X (Unshaded)|
It is important for tenants to note the category of flood zone may not accurately reflect actual frequency of flooding.
The 1% annual chance flood (100-year flood), also known as the base flood, is the flood that has a 1% chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year.
If you have questions or want to determine how much and what part of the property is located in a flood plain, flood maps can be viewed at: https://flood.nc.gov/ncflood/ or https://fris.nc.gov/fris.
