Fema's New Flood Maps
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued updated flood hazard maps for four of the hardest hit areas recovering from Super Storm Sandy, including Little Silver. These new Preliminary Work Maps replace FEMA’s previously released Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) maps, which were adopted by the state by emergency rule for rebuilding efforts in the immediate aftermath of the storm.
