Information About New Flood Maps and Flood Ordinance Changes

06.13.2018

Brunswick County is considering adopting new flood maps and amending the County’s Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

FEMA regularly updates Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) using studies to improve the maps and ensure their accuracy. The last maps FEMA approved for our area were adopted in 2006; since then, FEMA has worked to study and improve these maps. Now that FEMA has approved updated maps, Brunswick County can adopt them and continue to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

To view the current effective maps or the preliminary maps on the State’s website, visit the Flood Risk Information System (FRIS) – Flood Maps, which will automatically show the current effective maps. To view the preliminary maps, in the top right corner of the page, click on “Effective” and change to “Preliminary.” This will allow the viewer to see the maps being adopted on August 28, 2018.

Brunswick County will be scheduling a public hearing about these changes, and a public informational workshop will be held on July 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the County Commissioners Chambers, at 30 Government Center Drive in Bolivia, NC.

Pandemic Influenza Preparedness

What is a pandemic? Pandemic flu is a virulent human flu that causes a global outbreak, or pandemic, of serious illness. Because there is little natural immunity, the disease can spread easily from person to person.
How is a pandemic different from the regular flu?

Seasonal flu

  • Occurs every year
  • Occurs during the winter, Dec. to March
  • Most people recover in 1-2 weeks with little medical treatment
  • The very young, elderly and very sick are most at risk

Pandemic flu

  • Occurs irregularly
  • Occurs at the same time of the year
  • Some people may never recover, even with medical treatment
  • People of every age may be at risk

 

What are the potential impacts of a pandemic?
  • Essential services may be disrupted, including banks, restaurants, post offices, stores and gas stations.
  • Food and water supplies may be interrupted and limited.
  • Being able to work may be difficult or impossible.
  • Schools and daycare centers may be closed for an extended period of time.
  • Medical care could be disrupted.
