Google Maps: Albany County One Percent Chance Of Flooding Per Year [KML] [iframe] 

Map uploaded on September 1, 2017.

This interactive map shows the FEMA Flood Maps for Albany County. Highlighted areas have a 1% yearly flood risk, or a 26% risk of flooding at least once every 30 years.

Red on the map are areas designated AE presents a 1 percent annual chance of flooding. This area is more commonly referred to as the base flood area or the 100-year flood plain. Because flood zone AE is prone to flood, property owners with mortgages from federally regulated lenders in these zones must buy flood insurance if they live in a community that participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Orange on the map are areas inundated by 100 year flooding, for which no base flood elevation have been established.

Yellow on the map are areas inundated by 100-year flooding (usually sheet flow on sloping terrain), for which average depths have been determined; flood depths range from 1 to 3 feet.
