MCC Introduces Suite of Flood Risk Services
The Massachusetts Coastal Coalition’s Know Flood suite of services brings flood risk information to your fingertips. These services are designed to meet the needs of realtors, lenders, policy holders and residential and commercial applications where flood information can affect everyday life.
“Know Flood Mapping” Service
Knowing your flood risk is now as easy as entering an address. The Know Flood Mapping Service has the entire nation’s digital flood maps online. Simply enter your address in the search bar, and the map pins your building’s location. This is available on our home page at www.knowflood.org
“Know Flood Zone” Determination
The Know Flood Zone determination is a guaranteed product, which means we guarantee our accuracy to officially determine what flood zone you are in. This is the same tool lenders use to decide if you are “in or out” of the high risk flood zone. This is an ideal tool for real estate professionals looking to inform potential sellers and buyers.
Along with our guaranteed determination comes our “Massive” report, which is one of the most comprehensive flood information reports available. It shows a map of your property, tells you the next closest flood zone, estimated ground elevation and more. All for one price.
“Know Flood Elevation” Certificate
With our national network of land surveyors, we can offer standard prices for elevation certificates across the country. You can order and schedule your elevation certificate online and pick from a standard or a rush schedule.
“Know Flood Removal” LOMA
The Letter Of Map Amendment (LOMA) is the easiest way to remove the building from the “A” or “V” zone if it qualifies. The Know Flood Removal is an expedited process and in most cases can be completed in 30 days. To start, you’ll need an elevation certificate. Then we review and verify that you are eligible. If you submit your LOMA request and are denied, there is no cost!
A portion of each service purchased is donated directly to the MCC. The MCC is a registered 501c3 charitable organization.
