ZONE CLASSIFICATIONS

PLEASE PRINT A COPY FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

Zone C, Zone X -      Areas determined to be outside 500-year floodplain determined to be outside the
                         1% and 0.2% annual chance floodplains.

Zone B, Zone X500 -  Areas of 500-year flood; areas of 100-year flood  with average depths of less than 1
                         foot or with drainage areas less than 1 square mile; and areas protected by levees
                         from 100-year flood.  An area inundated by 0.2% annual chance flooding.

Zone A -          An area inundated by 1% annual chance flooding, for which no BFEs have been
                         determined.

Zone AE -        An area inundated by 1% annual chance flooding, for which BFEs have been
                         determined.

Zone AH -        An area inundated by 1% annual chance flooding (usually an area of ponding),
                          for which BFEs have been determined; flood depths range from 1 to 3 feet.

Zone AO -        An area inundated by 1% annual chance flooding (usually sheet flow on sloping
                           terrain), for which average depths have been determined; flood depths range from
                           1 to 3 feet.

Zone AR -         .An area inundated by flooding, for which BFEs or average depths have been
                           determined.  This is an area that was previously, and will again, be protected from
                           the 1% annual chance flood by a Federal flood protection system whose
                           restoration is Federally funded and underway

Zone A1-A30 -   An area inundated by 1% annual chance flooding, for which BFEs have been
                         determined.
.

Area Not
Included
  (ANI),(N)      -    An area that is located within a community or county that is not mapped on any
                          published FIRM.

Zone D -           An area of undetermined but possible flood hazards.

Undescribed
(UNDES)   -     Area of Undesignated Flood Hazard.  A body of open water, such as a pond,lake,
                          ocean, etc., located within a community's jurisdictional limits, that has no defined
                          flood hazard.

Zone VE -        An area inundated by 1% annual chance flooding with velocity hazard
                          (wave action); BFEs have been determined.

Zone V(1-30) -    Costal flood with velocity hazard
                            (wave action); BFEs have not been determined.

FWIC -           An area where the floodway is contained within the channel banks and the channel
                         is too narrow to show to scale.  An arbitrary channel width of  3 meters is shown.
                        BFEs are not shown in this area, although they may be reflected on the
                        corresponding profile. (Floodway Contained in Channel)

100IC -          An area where the 1% annual chance flooding is contained within the channel
                        banks and the channel is too narrow to show to scale.  An arbitrary channel width
                        of  3 meters is shown. BFEs are not shown in this area, although they may be
                        reflected on the corresponding profile.  (1% Annual Chance Flood Discharge
                        Contained in Channel)

500IC -           An area where the 0.2% annual chance flooding is contained within the channel
                         banks and the channel is too narrow to show to scale.  An arbitrary channel width
                         of  3 meters is shown. ( 2% Annual Chance Flood Discharge Contained in channel)
