Flood Information

The Town of Oak Island Development Services Department would like to pass on a reminder that our office provides flood information services for the Town of Oak Island. Items our office can specifically help with include:
• Basic Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) Information: Our maps will show if your property is in the Special Flood Hazard (SFHA) area and we can provide the basic information that you will need to secure flood insurance.
• Additional FIRM information: Our maps will show if your property is located in a floodway.
• Historical Flood Information: We can provide information to let you know if your property is in an area that has suffered repetitive flooding.
• Natural Floodplain functions: We can provide you information to let you know if your property is located in or near sensitive, natural or protected floodplain areas such as wetlands.
• Elevation Certificates: We have copies of elevation certificates for most existing structures in the Special Flood Hazard Areas.
