SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FEMA proposes to make flood hazard determinations 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 flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. 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 flood hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after the FIRM and FIS report become effective.

Correction

In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 78 FR 77482, in the December 23, 2013, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table titled “Sussex County, Delaware, and Incorporated Areas”. This table included the Town of South Bethany as one of the communities for which flood hazard changes were being proposed. FEMA is no longer proposing these flood hazard determination changes for the Town of South Bethany as identified in the above-referenced publication.
