Homeoweners, renters and business owners in these Parishes are encouraged to view the preliminary flood maps to better understand where flood risks have been indentified. People who have comments or who would like to file an appeal must do so through their local floodplain administrator. Appeals must be based on technical data that show proposed maps to be scientifically inaccurate. Anyone who makes an appeal must include the method, data and analysis used to support the claim. Residents are also allowed to comment on map features which they feel are incorrect, such as roads or jurisdictional boundaries. Once all comments and appeals are resolved, FEMA will notify communities of the effective date of the final maps.
