Flood Protection Information

In order to increase safety, expedite building processes, and keep citizens informed, Storey County provides and maintains a Flood Protection Information section on its county website. 

Here you can find information regarding flood hazards, weather alerts, and community safety in the event of a flood. Also available are public records of Elevation Certificates processed through the county's Building Department. 

Storey County also provides links to real-time water level gauges, which are instrumental in helping predict flood risk. 

For information relating to flood insurance, please visit FloodSmart, FEMA's National Flood Insurance program website.

The FEMA website also contains a wide variety of literature on flood protection and mitigation. Links to several of these documents can be found under the tab labeled "FEMA Flood Protection Literature" on the left-hand side of this page.
