Klamath County Flood Maps

FEMA, in cooperation with the state of Oregon, Klamath County, tribes, and local communities, has updated flood maps to more accurately represent the risk of flooding in Klamath County. To help inform the community, FEMA has developed a virtual StoryMap for residents to visit online to learn more about what these flood maps mean. You can view the StoryMap by visiting: bit.ly/klamathstorymap

Via the StoryMap, property owners and community residents can learn about the flood mapping process, what the changes mean for them, and information about the National Flood Insurance Program. Residents can also find direct contact information should they need additional support.

Klamath County encourages community members to visit the website, learn more about your flood risk, and ask additional questions via the contact information provided on the website. You can preview the maps directly at bit.ly/klamathmapcomparison, or request a custom flood map by emailing PropertyIDMap@starr-team.com

Flooding is the most common and most expensive natural disaster in the United States. Statistics show that the high-risk areas on flood maps have a 26-% chance of being flooded at some point during a 30-year mortgage. Learn more about the costs of flooding and flood insurance on the FloodSmart website at www.floodsmart.gov.
