[ARCHIVED] Know Your Flood Zone

April Flooding Zone

The Village of Palmetto Bay’s location in southeastern Florida makes us very susceptible to hurricanes and tropical storms. Additionally, our relatively flat topography and our network of canals and storm water infrastructure also contribute to flood risk across Palmetto Bay. The primary cause of flooding in the Village of Palmetto Bay is coastal flooding due to hurricane storm surge as well as normal tidal movement. Palmetto Bay is also susceptible to ponding from heavy rainfall. Flash flooding can also occur when heavy rains overflow small ditches or overwhelm the drainage system. This is especially true when leaves and debris clog the storm water system and limit its capacity. Being prepared is your best defense against a flood.
