I have a friend that is thinking of moving to Charlotte. He wants to know where the areas are that flood. Does anyone know how I can find out?

Any insurance company can tell you, but you must know the EXACT location(i.e. street address)...virtually every area has 100-year flood plains to some extent...the proximity to water is obviously a big factor.

Yeah, here we just have to worry about creeks as it's pretty flat.

Just a caution, some of the gis sites are outdated with respect to fema floodplains -- best bet is to contact an insurance agent or company with the property address before you write an offer.

Flood maps for Mecklenburg County were revised in 2003 and reviewed and approved by FEMA in 2004. After selecting the link above for Mecklenburg County select either POLARIS or FloodZone Application. Maps on these show current flood zones. The FloodZone Application has links to other sites with more information.
