SALINE COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) -- Drafts of updated flood insurance maps are available for people in four Saline County communities.
If you live, or own a business, in Alexander, Bauxite, Benton, or Bryant, the changes to these maps could affect whether or not you're required to buy flood insurance, and how much it would cost. That’s because some areas that were not initially considered flood-prone, are now considered to be at-risk.
Community members can comment on these proposed changes and county officials will forward those comments to FEMA as part of the 90-day appeal process.
