You might want to check out the online FEMA flood maps. You can put in the address and it will show if a location is in a known flood zone. Just navigate your way around the site:

I'd be very careful,...even if your home is not in the flood plain, when ever it does flood, (and lately that seems to be 2x a year) getting around Wayne, and to and from the wayne area is a nightmare. Rte 23, the main artery in/out of Wayne (and access to rte 80) is closed for a period of time as well due to flooding.

Yes. Do not buy.

I heard that the NJ gov. was considering buying up all the flooded properties in towns like Wayne and closing the areas off.

Most of Wayne is NOT in a flood zone

To be absolutely sure, you should have your real estate attorney run an official check on a property and send you the report via email as confirmation. This goes for ANY property and ANY town in NJ

Maybe I'm slow but anytime I've used that fema website to check if an address was in a flood zone I haven't been able to understand what the heck I'm looking at.

Some of the houses on Chapel have a small stream in the back yard. There is an X500 zone along the brook. 500-year flood zones do not require flood insurance. However there is a park just to the west of Chapel Pl, most of which is in a flood zone. In fact, that park is probably a park because it is a flood zone, mainly stemming from the brook that runs through it that eventually connects to the Passaic River. So technically Chapel Pl is not in a flood zone for insurance purposes, but it is fairly close to some significant flood zones.

You have to be told an area is in a flood zone, a bank would certainly want to know. Most of Wayne is NOT in a flood zone or flood plain. Sometimes, yes Rt 23 gets closed because of flooding, but that is usually in an extreme flood. There were a couple of them in the last few years, but I don't remember flooding last year. If the flooding gets so bad that Rt 23 is affected then people living up county in West Milford, Kinnelon, etc will have trouble getting around. Areas in Bergen County are also affected by flooding.

I just checked out a map, Warbler Dr is on the high side of Wayne. The only way that might be affected is if it rained for 40 days and 40 nights and the mountain behind it washed down.
