This notice provides corrections to that table, to be used in addition to the information published at 76 FR 50960. The table provided here represents the flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and modified elevations, and communities affected for Pitt County, North Carolina, and Incorporated Areas. Specifically, it addresses the following flooding sources: Pea Branch and Reedy Branch.

DATES:

Comments are to be submitted on or before July 15, 2013.

ADDRESSES:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).

These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are minimum requirements. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed elevations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and also are used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in those buildings.

In the proposed rule published at 76 FR 50960, in the August 17, 2011, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled “Pitt County, North Carolina, and Incorporated Areas” did not address the flooding sources Pea Branch and Reedy Branch. That table omitted information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, and communities affected for those flooding sources. In this document, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate information, to address these prior errors. The information provided below should be used in addition to that previously published.

Correction

In proposed rule FR Doc. 2011-20966, beginning on page 50952 in the issue of August 17, 2011, make the following correction. On page 50957, add the following:Start Printed Page 22222
