Post-Sandy FEMA flood maps

I have to admit that I am pretty surprised to find how frequently this summer I am hearing about the FEMA flood maps from unexpected sources around our region. At strictly social events with non-designers and non-planners, it still comes up. To help with those coffee shop conversations, you may want to check out this FAQ on the flood maps that was published by the Star-Ledger. For students in the regional design studios this fall, not only should you check out the FAQ, but you should be thinking about what it means for places like Tuckerton, Eaglesboro, Stafford, and Little Egg Harbor.
