ANSWER:
Flood Zone A is a special flood hazard area designation by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Zone A areas have a 1 percent annual chance of flooding. This flood is also called the 100-year flood. Property owners with structures in Flood Zone A, which have a federally backed mortgage are required to obtain flood insurance. If your property is within a County unincorporated area, and you need further information, please contact Mr. Eduardo Escobar at (626) 458-4321 or for more information go tohttp://dpw.lacounty.gov/wmd/nfip/ .
