You can go to http://www.floodsmart.gov/
to enter a property address to see what type of zone it is in.
It is always wise especially when living on the water to obtain flood insurance. Also keep in mind that if you are financing, you will become obligated to carry flood insurance if the home you are purchasing happens to meet the appropriate risk level.
