    There is a Farmers Insurance Agent that Specializes in Flood Zone Determinations and Flood Insurance. http://www.myfarmersagent.org he has alot of usefull information that is up to date. I live in Tulare Co. Visalia to be exact. We Called Dave Grigorieff who was the agent who that was recomended to me by my neighbor when FEMA remapped our community. He was able to get us a preferred rate policy for $ 348.00 the first year. It also grandfathered our property so that we arent subject to high risk rates.I have been following the changes FEMA has made to all the flood zones in California and other states as well. FEMA began re-maping the majority of the U.S. and they are placing several communities in to High Risk Flood Zones. This is forcing people to purchase flood insurance. The reason people are forced to buy is the fact that the federal government backs mortgage loans, and they also administer flood insurance. Funny isnt it??? The rates are regulated by the government as well. All companies offer the coverage at the same rate, it doesnt matter who you buy through other than the fact that you better have someone who knows what they are doing. You dont want to mess this up, it will cost you thousands. If you dont buy your policy before the new maps take effect then you will be forced to pay high risk rates which are no less than $ 1500.00 a year. And Guess what??? You cant make monthly payments!!! Its all up front paid in full for the year. My other neighbor who decided not to buy a policy got a nice letter from his lender saying that if he didnt buy in on his own than they would place it for him. Of course charging him about $ 3,000 a year and increasing his mortgage more than $ 200.00 a month. You can buy it early, so do it. If you have questions call my agent, he works with FEMA and several local government offices. His name is Dave http://www.myfarmersagent.org is his site.

    Well, the flood maps should be on file in the local municipality, but THEY won’t do the determination for you.

    YOUR AGENT should be answering your questions – big red flag that they can’t – or won’t – track down your answers. The actual zone determination is done by FEMA, or the insurance company who’s writing the coverage on their behalf. It’s an easy, easy process, and your agent should be talking to NFIP to get your zone determination. Your mortgage company, assuming you’re buying a house, will ALSO do a zone determination.

    Flood insurance costs vary, depending on how much coverage you want, and what zone you are in. But the actual RATES are set by FEMA, so there is no competition.
