It has had storm surges but each property is different and obviously the last great one was in '38. A certificate of elevation can be obtained by hiring and engineer. Also, the flood maps can be challenged by doing this. Everything is property specific by street. Reviewing the FEMA flood maps for a particular property is the best way to start online.
Work with a buyer's agent on properties to ensure you are represented well.
