Louisiana NFIP FloodMaps Portal Services

July 27th, 2017

The LSU AgCenter Flood Maps portal was created in 2008 as a building-code education tool for wind-resistance, and was later expanded to help the people of Louisiana engage in the process of revising the Flood Insurance Rate Maps for their communities. Since 2011 the portal displays the current, pending and most recent historic FIRMs for all parishes in the state, whether or not the maps are being revised, and includes an expanded “What does this mean” feature. FIRMs impact daily life, as they are tied to construction permitting and mortgage lending. It has SOME use for actual flood events.
