Is a Flood Inundation Zone the same as an Evacuation Zone?
No! Flood zones are areas established by the National Weather Service using historical and statistical data of flooding and/or tidal surge potential to Ocean City, which provide residents and property owners their degree of flood risk. Emergency Managers use flood inundation, tidal surge, and winds to determine potential risk to the various communities throughout the Town, specifically in a storm or emergency. It is important for our residents, property owners and visitors to know which zone and division they reside, incase an evacuation is required.
