Maryland counties have redrawn their floodplain maps after FEMA completed its coastal flood hazard and mapping studies along the coastlines of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
The maps below show floodplain map changes in Annapolis, Baltimore and Ocean City.
Anne Arundel County's flood map changes go into effect Feb. 18, 2015.
Properties are moving out of the low and moderate flood risk zones. A row of businesses on Market Street (just above the Market Space) is moving out of the flood zones.
Baltimore City's flood map changes went into effect April 2, 2014.
In Baltimore, properties surrounding the Inner Harbor moved out of the dark blue region of the flood map in 2012. This means they are no longer in a zone that is susceptible to wave action.
Worcester County's flood map changes will go into effect May 18, 2015.
Some properties along the ocean are moving out of the flood zone that is susceptible to wave action. On the bay side, many properties are moving entirely out of the flood zone.
