2,000 Structures in Fargo, N.D., to Need Flood Insurance with Map Changes

July 23, 2014

More people will be required to buy flood insurance in Fargo because of a change in flood plain maps.

About 2,000 homes and businesses will need insurance when the new Federal Emergency Management Association map goes into effect in January.

KFGO radio reports that those affected are mainly south of Interstate 94. Some properties may be removed from the flood plain once additional protection is in place.

The city is urging residents to act soon. There’s a 30-day waiting period and the cost of insurance could increase once the flood plain map is updated.
