Every once in a blue moon we come across a weird situation with regards to the Flood Insurance Rate Maps that are available through FEMA's webstore.

The area will be have a map number, but no panel(s); also, there is always a conversion letter. The multi-layered GIS maps also show the panel with only the map number followed by A (for the first version).

For example:

Pennsylvania, Wyoming County, Nicholson Township; http://msc.FEMA.gov/webapp/wcs/stor...e=13045&cat_county=15293&cat_community=356161

We describe the results of our research in our addenda - my question is - has anyone else run into this and is there a way to dig deeper?

Thanks in advance for any opinions!

Non-participating area, thus no published map?

Non published maps generally indicate that none of that area is in a flood zone.
