FEMA is in the process of updating Broward County’s flood maps, which will likely be finished next year. The last maps, completed in 1997, show that the vast majority of Broward is in a flood zone. It’s not only eastern, low-lying areas in a flood zone but also western Broward, which was once part of the Everglades. The flood maps help assess risk and determine flood insurance premiums.
