FEMA urges residents to take part in federal insurance program

By Molly Haines

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is encouraging those without flood insurance to become insured.

FEMA recently provided county government with a new flood-insurance study and flood insurance rate map.

According to the study, areas of Owen County that previously may have had a 1-percent chance of flooding may be more at risk than previously estimated.

If the changes to the flood map are finalized, the modifications will become the basis for flood-plain management measures Owen County must adopt to be included in the National Flood Insurance Program.
