With summer in full swing, you may not be thinking of the coming raining season and the potential for higher than normal rainfall that can cause flooding and property damage. However, anytime is a good time to learn if the commercial, industrial, or residential property in Anaheim that you own or rent is located in a flood zone. The City of Anaheim’s Planning and Building Department has information that can help you determine whether or not your property is in a flood zone, also known as a FEMA Special Flood Hazard Area. 

If you are a lender or insurance agent, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) also has specific flood insurance information available to you. Please visit FEMA’s website at http://www.fema.gov/national-flood-insurance-program/information-insurance-professionals for further information.
To view a citywide flood zone map, obtain flood-related information, determine if your property has an Elevation or Floodproofing Certificate, or if you have other flood-related questions, please contact the Planning and Building Department, at (714) 765-5139 or or visit www.anaheim.net/planning.
