National Flood Policy—ASFPM 2015 Recommendations
N. Special (or Unique) Flood-related Hazards
N.1. Require inclusion of unique hazards (erosion,
subsidence, closed lake basins, frazil ice, ice jams,
tsunamis, debris flow and mud slides) in
state/local hazard mitigation plans, where
applicable. Allow NFIP communities to identify,
map, and communicate erosion hazard zones and
risks by federal, state, or local Zone E on FIRMs or
separate GIS layers (may be used for CRS credit)
per 44 CFR Parts 59.1, 60.5, and 60.24. Also see
F.18, G.20, G.22, and K16 (erosive areas).
I DISAGREE. WHEN DONE PROPERLY, MHMPs ARE
TAILORED TO LOCAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING
RIGOROUS RISK ANALYSIS TO DISTINGUISH
HIGHER RISKS FROM N.A. FOR THAT LOCATION
N.2. Develop techniques for mapping, mitigation
and management of special hazards Also see A.2,
A.3, A.4, M3 and M.4.
This may include mapping and regulation done at
the local or State level which may be accepted by
FEMA, rather than relying on FEMA to begin and
develop these processes.
