PRELIMINARY SUMMARY OF MAP ACTIONS
Community: NEWPORT, CITY OF - Community No:445403
To assist your community in maintaining the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), we have summarized below the previously issued Letter of Map Change (LOMC) actions (i.e., Letters of Map Revision (LOMRs) and Letters of Map Amendment (LOMAs) that will be affected by the preparation of the enclosed revised FIRM panel(s).
1. LOMCs Incorporated
The modifications effected by the LOMCs listed below have been reflected on the Preliminary copies of the revised FIRM panels. In addition, these LOMCs will remain in effect until the revised FIRM becomes effective.
2. LOMCs Not Incorporated
The modifications effected by the LOMCs listed below have not been reflected on the Preliminary copies of the revised FIRM panels because of scale limitations or because the LOMC issued had determined that the lot(s) or structure(s) involved were outside the Special Flood Hazard Area, as shown on the FIRM.
These LOMCs will be revalidated free of charge 1 day after the revised FIRM becomes effective through a single revalidation letter that reaffirms the validity of the previous LOMCs.
3. LOMCs Superseded
The modifications effected by the LOMCs listed below have not been reflected on the Preliminary copies of the revised FIRM panels because they are being superseded by new detailed flood hazard information or the information available was not sufficient to make a determination. The reason each is being superseded is noted below. These LOMCs will no longer be in effect when the revised FIRM becomes effective.
- Insufficient information available to make a determination.
- Lowest Adjacent Grade and Lowest Finished Floor are below the proposed Base Flood Elevation.
- Lowest Ground Elevation is below the proposed Base Flood Elevation.
- Revised hydrologic and hydraulic analyses.
- Revised topographic information.
4. LOMCs To Be Redetermined
The LOMCs in Category 2 above will be revalidated through a single revalidation letter that reaffirms the validity of the determination in the previously issued LOMC. For LOMCs issued for multiple lots or structures where the determination for one or more of the lots or structures has changed, the LOMC cannot be revalidated through this administrative process.
Therefore, we will review the data previously submitted for the LOMC requests listed below and issue a new determination for the affected properties after the effective date of the revised FIRM.
