NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Following superstorm Sandy, the Federal Emergency Management Agency adjusted flood maps across the Tri-State Area.
The World Trade Center site is now in a flood zone, along with parts of Chelsea and the East Village, according to the redrawn maps of New York City.
The new maps are posted online at region2coastal.com and were already in the works before Sandy hit in late October. Some modifications were made in response to the storm.
New Yorkers can now type in their address to see if their home has been added to the amended FEMA flood maps.
“In the Rockaways, there were some areas that were added. Lower Manhattan, there were some areas actually taken out but there were also some areas added,” said Philip Parr with FEMA.
