The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the City of New Orleans will host a September 15 workshop providing information on FEMA’s new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) that become effective on September 30, 2016.

Many New Orleans residents and businesses are expected to see decreases in their flood insurance costs due to improvements in flood protection and drainage in the city. According to a press release from New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the new FIRMs will affect approximately 85,000 policies in New Orleans.
