Know Your Flood Hazard

Coastal Flood Zones

Brunswick County consists of several flood zones. Flood Zone X and Shaded X are considered to be a low risk for flooding and are not regulated by ordinance at this time. The following flood zones have mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements and floodplain management standards apply:

  • VE zones or Coastal High Hazard Areas are zones where high velocity wave action accompanies the storm surge and can cause severe damage to buildings.
  • Coastal A Zone (NEW): area landward of a V-Zone, or landward of an open coast without mapped V-Zones. In a Coastal A Zone, the principal source of flooding will be astronomical tides, storm surges, seiches or tsunamis, not riverine flooding.
  • AE zones are areas affected by storm surge but where wave action is diminished or absent.
  • Flood Zone A are areas subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event.

Because detailed hydraulic analyses have not been performed, no Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) or flood depths are shown.
