FEMA map update

With 100 year floods happening every few years around here, it is good to hear that FEMA is updating their maps for Middlesex County. It isn't just a change in flood patterns, but an improvement in the terrain modeling, now that they are collecting their data with LiDAR. According to the Home News and Tribune, their update moved another 1,000 residences into the floodplain.
