How Will the Map Affect Me?
A larger portion of Fargo was included in the revised Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) map. Many properties will change categories from a low-risk (Zone X, 500-year) into the high-risk SFHA (Zone A). Property owners newly mapped into the SFHA may be required to purchase flood insurance. All federally regulated mortgages are required to carry flood insurance if the properties are located in the SFHA.
