Preliminary work maps showing coastal flood hazards for Westchester County, New York are now available. You can look up the flood zone and Base Flood Elevation from the maps for a specific property using the What is My BFE? address lookup tool.
The preliminary work maps are an interim product created in the process of developing preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and replace the Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) information released in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy as the most recent coastal flood hazard information available from FEMA in this county. Learn more about preliminary work maps through the Preliminary Work Map FAQ and other resources on the Using FEMA Flood Hazard Data page.
