Neuse Realty’s Pat Dumon and Marcia Werneke moderated the flood issue presentation held on Tuesday, October 27, from 3 – 5 pm at the Fairfield Harbour Community Center, with speakers from the Craven County Planning & Inspections, The Insurance Center, and surveyor Mark Lee.
- Answers to a few frequently asked questions: “What is a flood zone? What do the letters and colors mean on the flood maps? What will happen to the existing zones when North Carolina re-draws the current flood maps?”
- Flood insurance and FEMA requirements for the lowest possible premiums and how the premiums are calculated.
- Since insurance companies require recently done elevation certificates to calculate flood premiums, surveyor Mark Lee discussed the certificate and minimum FEMA requirements for flood vents.
