If you are located outside the City of Shreveport and beyond the MPC (Five miles outside City limits) and would like to know if a parcel is in a flood zone, contact the Public Works Department (318) 226-6934. A trained technician will locate your property and verify its location within the flood zone. The technician will also determine if it is outside incorporated areas, using the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) established by FEMA under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition to the 100-year Floodplain map, other mapping information is available at link Caddo mitigation plan 2016.
If you require help identifying the placement of your property concerning flood zones, you may visit our office in the Government Plaza building 505 Travis Street, Suite 820, Shreveport, Louisiana, or access the Online Map Search provided by FEMA. The FEMA site allows a citizen to do a flood zone search by property address. Another easy-to-use map that is is located at LA FloodMaps.
