With much of the country falling within a flood hazard area there is a resource available to help you determine the zone of a location.
FEMA offers a link on their website that you can enter the full address or general location to view the flood map.
This tool can be very useful if you taking a mortgage because the lender will require a flood insurance policy for hazard areas. It can also assist you in getting a quote for an insurance policy if one is necessary.
