Note: Flood zones represent a conservative estimation of areas that would experience flooding in the event of a hurricane. Zone 1 is the area that would be flooded by a Category I hurricane. A Category II hurricane would cause flooding in Zones 1 and 2. The hurricane categories reference the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.
