FEMA updates Dripping Springs flood maps

Thursday, July 27, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

This week the Federal Emergency Management Agency released its proposed flood map updates for Dripping Springs and parts of Hays County. FEMA is now working to educate community members on those maps, how their risk of flood has changed since the last mapping and flood insurance. Notably, “some buildings in Hays County may, for the first time, be included in a high-risk flood zone,” the city of Dripping Springs noted in a press release Wednesday. The release also said some property owners could find their risk has decreased. A public open house is scheduled for Aug. 22 at the Wimberley Community Center. A host of representatives from the state, county, Dripping Springs and FEMA will be on hand to answer questions. Prepare for the meeting by reviewing the maps here.

This whisper has been corrected.
