Saturday we had flash flooding in Portsmouth, Hampton and Newport News, and again last night. I am attaching a recent news story.
We are in an area surrounded by the ocean & bay, and riddled with lakes, canals, rivers. If you have a mudpuddle behind your house it qualifies for waterfront property, lol.
I don't find FEMA maps the most user friendly. :) But if you would like me to look up or find properties in Portsmouth for you that are not in a flood risk zone, feel free to contact me. Would love to help.
