The areas designated as “A Zones” (those starting with the letter A) are considered to be within the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). However, residents outside of the SFHA should take note of the property protection measures and flood safety information since floods can still occur in their areas. To view an interactive map of the Flood Zones within the City, please go to the City’s GIS system at www.wpbgis.com.
Some of properties within the City of West Palm Beach located within the “Special Flood Hazard Area” may be vulnerable to flooding during storms with heavy rains and/or east winds. For more information on finding out whether you live in a Flood Zone, call (561) 805-6705 for the Construction Services Department or visit their website at wpb.org/construction.
