ATTENTION MARSHFIELD, SCITUATE AND DUXBURY RESIDENTS
Were you newly mapped into a flood zone in last years map revision?
Have you purchased insurance yet?
Not sure if you were newly mapped?
NOVEMBER 3rd 2017 is the LAST day you can purchase the newly mapped flood insurance policy!
If you were newly mapped from the “X” zone (not in a flood zone) then were moved into a flood zone in the November 2016 flood map change, this is important to you! If you do not buy a flood insurance policy by November 3rd, 2017, you will NOT be grandfathered. Newly mapped rates go up at 15% a year, but not getting this policy will subject you to higher rates immediately.
