Flood Maps

This web page is hosted by the City of Visalia for the purpose of providing important information to the citizens of Visalia on the new FEMA flood maps that became effective June 16, 2009.


All zones that begin with the letter “A” are called a Special Flood Hazard Area and/or a High-Risk Flood Zone. These terms are interchangeable. This is important as you review the information on this web page and the FEMA web site.

ZONES A, AH, AE, AO – All zones beginning with “A” are determined by FEMA to be high-risk and flood insurance is normally required if a property is involved in any type of loan or credit line.

ZONES X, X500, X(0.2) – All zones beginning with “X” are determined by FEMA to be low or moderate risk and flood insurance is recommended but not required.
