What if I disagree with FEMA’s preliminary flood maps?

Before the revised FEMA flood maps become effective, there is a 90-day public appeal and comment period. During that time, residents, or businesses with supporting technical and scientific information, such as detailed hydraulic or hydrologic data, can appeal to FEMA the flood risk information on the preliminary maps. At any time after the FIRM is adopted, the property owner can submit data to FEMA requesting a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or Letter of Map Revision (LOMR).
