We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action. corrections to that table, to be used in lieu of the information published at 75 FR 5909.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction. AGENCY: On February 5, 2010, FEMA published in the Federal Register a proposed rule that contained an erroneous table. This notice provides SUMMARY: Flooding source(s) Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are minimum requirements. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed elevations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and also are used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in those buildings. Corrections In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 5909, in the February 5, 2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ‘‘Ballard County, Kentucky, and Incorporated Areas’’ addressed the following flooding sources: Cane Creek (backwater effects from Mississippi, Hazel Creek (backwater effects from Ohio River), Humphrey Creek (backwater effects from Ohio River), Humphrey Creek Tributary 9 (backwater effects from Ohio River), Lucy Creek (backwater effects from Ohio River), Mississippi River, Ohio River, and Stovall Creek (backwater effects from Mississippi River.

published at 75 FR 5909. The table provided here represents the 
flooding source, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and community affected for Ballard County, 
Kentucky, and Incorporated Areas. Specifically, it addresses the 
following flooding sources: Cane Creek (backwater effects from 
Mississippi, Hazel Creek (backwater effects from Ohio River), Humphrey 
Creek (backwater effects from Ohio River), Humphrey Creek Tributary 9 
(backwater effects from Ohio River), Lucy Creek (backwater effects from 
Ohio River), Mississippi River, Ohio River, and Stovall Creek 
(backwater effects from Mississippi River.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before March 11, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% annual-chance) 
Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating 
in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with 
section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 
4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).
    These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are minimum requirements. 
They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any 
existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain 
management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter 
requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other 
Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed elevations are 
used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and 
also are used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium 
rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, 
and for the contents in those buildings.

    In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 5909, in the February 5, 
2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Ballard County, 
Kentucky, and Incorporated Areas'' addressed the following flooding 
sources: Cane Creek (backwater effects from Mississippi, Hazel Creek 
(backwater effects from Ohio River), Humphrey Creek (backwater effects 
from Ohio River), Humphrey Creek Tributary 9 (backwater effects from 
Ohio River), Lucy Creek (backwater effects from Ohio River), 
Mississippi River, Ohio River, and Stovall Creek (backwater effects 
from Mississippi River. That table contained inaccurate information as 
to the communities affected for the flooding source the Mississippi 
River. In this notice, FEMA is publishing a table containing the 
accurate information, to address these prior errors. The information 
provided below should be used in lieu of that previously published.
