To find out your school’s flood risk, search below by school name. The risk assessment comes from FEMA’s National Flood Hazard Layer database. A school listed as “High” risk is located in an area classified by FEMA as a Special Flood Hazard Area, meaning it has a one percent or greater risk of flooding in any given year. “Moderate” risk means the school is in a 100-year flood zone with expected flooding of less than one foot, in a 500-year flood zone, or it has its flood risk reduced due to a levee certified by the Army Corps of Engineers. A “Low” risk school is located in an area of minimal flood hazard. If the risk is “Possible” it means FEMA has not determined the flood risk because no hazard analysis has been conducted. “Unknown” areas aren’t included in the FEMA database.
