Fiona:

I have sold many homes in that zip code, it covers a large area. It will be incorrect to say that the 34758 zip code is a flood area, it will be correct to say that areas within that zip code are designated as possible flood zones. Homes within the same community may or may not be in a flood zone.

The flood zone maps are updated every so many years. If you have selected a home, we could search the flood risk by address. In order to purchase Home Insurance they require an Elevation Certificate, which is issued by a land surveyor and it certifies the likelihood or not of being in a flood zone.

I have lived in in Kissimmee for 20 years and have no recollection of ever hearing news about a flood in 34758. This link will take you directly to FEMA, where you can search the information on flood zones.

Regarding crime, this link will give you crime rates but have not been updated lately.
