The City and Lewis County updating LC Hazard Mitigation Plan

A partnership of Lewis County and the City of Centralia along with other local agencies are working together to update the Lewis County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The following questions will help us measure how much local citizens already know about local disaster-related issues and will assist us in identifying areas where we can improve.  The information you provide will be used to help improve public/private coordination, mitigation, and risk reduction efforts in the County.  The survey has 34 questions and should take around 10 minutes to complete.
Participation in this study is voluntary and your completed survey indicates your willingness to take part in the study.  Lewis County and the participating stakeholders thank you for taking the time to participate in this important process.


Expect Your Flood Insurance Rates To Increase

FEMA Presentation made at the January 16, 2014 - Chehalis River Basin Flood Authority Meeting

The U.S. Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 in July 2012, which calls on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other agencies, to make a number of changes to the way the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is run. The legislation will require the NFIP to raise rates to reflect true flood risk, make the program more financially stable, and change how Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) updates impact policyholders. The changes will mean premium rate increases for some—but not all—policyholders over time.
