Major Disaster Declaration
Sept. 7, 2021
On Sunday, recovery from Tropical Storm Ida continued and President Joe Biden announced a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of New Jersey as well as the individual counties of Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic, and Somerset. It is expected that additional counties, including Essex, Hudson, Mercer, and Union, will be added as FEMA and the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management finalize preliminary damage assessments.
You can use the MSC to evaluate if your home is in a flood zone. The MSC provides official flood maps. It also provides access to a range of flood hazard products and tools to better understand flood risk.
FEMA flood maps are continually updated through a variety of processes. Information that you download or print from this site may change or become superseded by new maps over time. For additional information, please see the Flood Hazard Mapping Updates Overview Fact Sheet
For assistance in determining your flood zone or risks, contact our Floodplain Administrator or Community Rating System (CRS) coordinator Annie Eng.
Do you have construction code questions in flood hazard areas? Contact the Township Construction Dept. for further assistance. We offer free UCC site visits and consultations are performed.
Elevation certificates are on record.
