New Hanover County Flood Plain Revised

JUNE 16, 2005 -- Wilmington officials have unveiled new flood plain maps for New Hanover County, and they will impact some people's insurance rates.

The decision to revise the state's flood plains came after several hurricanes left behind severe damage.

A handful of residents showed up at the New Hanover County Courthouse Thursday night to find their homes on the maps and learn how the changes will affect their insurance bills.
