There will be public meeting across the country to comment on President’s new Executive Order 13690, “The Federal Flood Risk Management Standard” for federal agencies.
All Federal Agencies (including FEMA) are required to take Sea Level rise into account and implement them into our flood maps. This will raise our required BFE’s, elevating “perceived” risk thereby raising the cost of our flood insurance premiums even further.
