Magnolia Joins National Flood Insurance Program

Date Posted: Friday, May 18th, 2018

The Town received notice from FEMA that, effective April 5, 2018, its application to join the National Flood Insurance Program was approved. This means that town residents who desire to purchase flood insurance may do so through insurance agents or brokers licensed to do business in the State of Delaware. Per FEMA documentation, the Town of Magnolia is not located in a flood plain, but residents wishing to purchase the insurance may still do so. There is a 30-day waiting period after your date of purchase for the policy to become effective. Additional information, such as our notification letter and the FEMA Policy Issuance can be found under the Town’s website dropdown link entitled National Flood Insurance Program.
