To look at a close-up view of flood hazard areas and where they are in relation to your property, go to the Story County GIS website. Enter your address in the Search box. Go to "Map" in the upper left hand corner and you can see the property and related floodplain.
Real-time flood information is provided by the stream and river sensors installed across the State of Iowa. If you’re tracking the progress of floodwaters, visit the Iowa Flood Center.
At any time, you may contact the Story County Floodplain Manager who is a Certified Floodplain Manager at 515-382-7251 or email the County Floodplain Manager. The Story County Floodplain Manager is able to print (either digitally or paper) copies of the flood hazard areas and where they are in relation to property for which you have questions. There is no charge for this service.
