FEMA Flood Map Update

Exeter Residents: You may have received the following letter in the mail recently.. FEMA is in the process of updating flood maps in Luzerne County and we wanted to make you aware that your status in or out of the floodplain may be changing. The maps are preliminary and more information will be forthcoming. The name on the envelope may be incorrect as satellite mapping was used by the county to get the information to us and was not 100% accurate- we just wanted to get the information out to all of our residents as quickly as possible. We will share more information as soon as we have it and there will be information sessions in the near future. Thank you.
