Living in Talbot County's beautiful and fragile environment exposes residents and visitors to flood hazards and sea-level rise. Being informed about current and future flood risks allows you to make informed decisions to prepare for rising waters.
With grant assistance from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Talbot County has produced a very useful and informative public outreach tool for the County’s floodplain management program and Emergency Services.
Use the guide below to learn about flood risks and find out how to prepare for flood events in our area.
The following brochures provide flood hazard information and access to online resources for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the Community Rating System, Talbot County's Floodplain Management Ordinance and recommendations to reduce your flood risk.
