What are the Flood Insurance Rate Zone Definitions?
  1. Zone A: Flood insurance rate zone subject to inundation by the 1-%-annual-chance flood event generally determined using approximate methodologies. Because detailed hydraulic analysis has not been performed, no base flood elevations (BFE) or flood depths are shown. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
  2. Zone AE: Flood insurance rate zone that corresponds to flood depths greater than three feet.  Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
  3. Zone X: Flood insurance rate zone that is outside of the floodplain or the average flood depths of less than one foot.  Flood insurance purchase is not mandatory.

Please note that copies of FEMA Elevation Certificates are available through the City of Deltona in perpetuity.
