call your insurance co. and ask about previous flooding. go knock at the neighbors doors to find out about previous flooding. I recommend flood insurance. It is priced right. Always buy it. I did not have to because it is optional with some mtg. companies when 20% i paid off with your mtg. and when Katrina hit, I was glad I did.Jo Ann Merse.

Lauren, it just depends on the exact location of the home. Some of the homes are in a flood zone and others are not. It can even vary on the same street / in the same neighborhood. Below is a link to the FEMA flood map so you can see which areas / homes are in a flood zone and which ones aren't.
