Regarding flood insurance, You might want to check the home address using FEMA's Flood Maps, which are here: . This will tell you the zone. However, even if it might appear to be in a flood zone, insurance may not be required, it varies from property to property. I know of one property in high risk AE zone in Southold where no insurance is required. House elevation is also a factor, some owners have an elevation certificate. As others have said, only an insurance agent can tell you whether or not your property must carry the flood insurance. I recommend you use a local agent as they deal with this all day every day and to that end, one person who can advise is Joe Stepnoski of Neefus Stype in Aquebogue. I have no affiliation, other than satisfied customer. The website is nsainsure (dot) com, or call joe on 631-722-3500 x 201. Hope this helps.

It depends what part of Hampton Bays you are in. Part is in the Southampton SD and part is in the Riverhead SD. The RSD taxes are higher than the SSD. You will have to check with an insurance agent to find out where you need flood insurance.

Your insurance company will be able to tell you if you are in a "flood zone" and explain the benefit and cost associated with this coverage.

Many people think "flood insurance" is an expensive proposition only to find it is not as costly as they thought.

Good luck
