SUMMARY: On January 30, 2014, FEMA published in the Federal Register a 
proposed flood hazard determination notice at 79 FR 4950 that contained 
a table which included a Web page address through which the Preliminary 
Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, the Flood 
Insurance Study (FIS) report for the communities listed in the table 
could be accessed. The information available through the Web page 
address has subsequently been updated. The table provided here 
represents the proposed flood hazard determinations and communities

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before March 11, 2015.

ADDRESSES: The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report 
for each community are available for inspection at both the online 
location and the respective Community Map Repository address listed in

report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map 
Service Center at www.msc.fema.gov for comparison.
    You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-1359, to 
Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Federal Insurance 
and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 
20472, (202) 646-4064, or (email) Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.dhs.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering 
Management Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, 
FEMA, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-4064 or (email)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard 
determinations for each community listed in the table below, 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 flood hazard determinations, together with the 
floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum 
that are required. 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 flood 
hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management 
requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate 
flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after the FIRM 
and FIS report become effective.
    Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to 
communities in support of the appeal resolution process. SRPs are 
independent panels of experts in hydrology, hydraulics, and other 
pertinent sciences established to review conflicting scientific and 
technical data and provide recommendations for resolution. Use of the 
SRP may only be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been 
engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days 
without a mutually acceptable resolution of an appeal. Additional 
information regarding the SRP process can be found online at http://www.floodsrp.org/pdfs/srp_fact_sheet.pdf.
    The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are 
provided in the table below. Any request for reconsideration of the 
revised flood hazard determinations shown on the Preliminary FIRM and 
FIS report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 
67.6(b) is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the flood hazard 
determinations will also be considered before the FIRM and FIS report 
are made final.

Correction

    In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 79 
FR 4950 in the January 30, 2014, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA 
published a table titled ``King and Queen County, Virginia, and 
Incorporated Areas.'' This table contained a Web page address through 
which the Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, FIS report for the 
communities listed in the table could be accessed online. A Revised 
Preliminary FIRM and/or FIS report have subsequently been issued for 
some or all of the communities listed in the table. The information 
available through the Web page address listed in the table has been 
updated to reflect the Revised Preliminary information and is to be 
used in lieu of the information previously available.
