Flooding is one of the worst natural disasters. Property owners and tenants need flooding insurance to be covered in the event of a flood. The City of Grandview has several pieces of land that fall on the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Flood Insurance Rate Map.
After two major floods in 2017 that severely damaged dozens of duplexes and homes, the City has compiled a list of responsibilities and resources for citizens. Here's hoping it will be at least 100 years before we have any more rains like July and August.
FEMA FLOOD INSURANCE RATE MAP
The Federal Emergency Management Agency – FEMA has issued copies of revised Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) for all of Jackson County, including Grandview. Revisions to the existing FIRM maps could impact those properties along or near the Little Blue River and/or major tributaries to the Little Blue River.
Also those properties along tributaries of the Blue River near the west city limit may be impacted. To learn more about the preliminary study visit the FEMA website View Your Community’s Preliminary Flood Hazard Data at
