FEMA Reviewing New Fishkill Flood Maps for Errors - Dutchess County Homes

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Serls Prime Properties

 

Recently, FEMA announced it will review Fishkill flood maps for errors after a backlash from the community in response to their homes being newly designated in a high-risk flood area.  The designation means the homeowner would need to obtain Flood Insurance at a possible cost of several thousand dollars at their expense.  Many homeowners who have never been in this category before are questioning the new mapping.   New federal flood maps have increased the amount of Dutchess County properties considered “high risk” by more than 1,100 homes.  If you have questions regarding your Dutchess county property being in a flood zone, contact:
