Hull Successful in Map Revision

Due to a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) submitted by the Town of Hull, flood maps for the town are changing.  This change will be effective December 13th.  If you are a resident of Hull, the LOMR will have one of three effects on you:

  • No effect- you either remain in or out of the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA)
  • You are removed from being in the SFHA
  • Your flood elevation is lowered

To find out how this LOMR will affect you, you can download the LOMR HERE (NOTE: this is a very large file)

We will be participating in an informational meeting in Hull in the spring.  Individual insurance questions should be referred to your insurance agent.

Legislative Update

The National Flood Insurance Program expires on December 8th.  Congress is discussing a short term extension to prevent any lapse in the program.  There will be more to come next week, so stay tuned!
