Lee County provides Flood Insurance Rate Map information that is required for a National Flood Insurance Program.

Some jurisdictions may also send you a “FIRM” letter listing both the required information and additional information including:
All FIRM panel information;
Flood zone and base flood elevation, presence of floodway or COBRA/OPA zone
Coastal High Hazard Area, Coastal Building Zone, Windspeed Building Risk Category
Watershed identification and related issues
