FEMA Flood Zone Maps
Do I need flood insurance?
FEMA is in the process of updating the Flood Insurance Rate Maps which show flood plains throughout East Baton Rouge Parish. An interactive map can help you determine if your property is within a flood plain. Simply go to www.RiskMap6.com, and select East Baton Rouge Parish.
You will be taken to an interactive map where you can enter your physical address on the left side, then choose “Flood Hazard Areas” from the Map Layers section on the left side. The map will then shade in the appropriate flood hazards on the map, which you can reference on the legend on the right side. Flood Zone “X” means your property is relatively out of a flood zone, while flood zones A, AE, AO, AH, and A99 mean that you are within a flood zone.
You can also search by FIRM PANEL # for a broader view of the city. The Firm Panel #’s within Central are those ending in the following suffixes: C0180E, C0185F, C0205E, C0190E, C0195F, C0215E, and C0280E.
While the floodplain data that is shown on the interactive map is the same, this map is not an official FEMA Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM). This Interactive Mapping Tool is not intended for insurance rating purposes and is for information only. The positional accuracy may be compromised in some areas. The map is not 100% accurate in locating your address. Please contact our local floodplain administrator at 225-262-5000 for more information or to view an official copy of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps at our Municipal Service Center located at 6703 Sullivan Rd.
