New FEMA Maps Add 73 Westport Homes to Flood Zone

UPDATE Seventy-three Westport homeowners are in for a surprise—the federal government has declared that their properties are in a flood zone. (See a list of the properties at the end of this article. Click here to download a map (PDF).)

The revelation is the result of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) updating its Westport flood zone maps, Planning and Zoning Director Laurence Bradley said today.

About 2,000 or 20 percent of Westport’s 10,000 properties are in a flood zone.

The updated maps show 73 homes not previously designated to be in a flood zone to be in a flood zone and about 200 homes that previously were designated to be in a flood zone no longer in a zone, according to P&Z staff members.

Learning About Community in a Small Argentine Village

WestportNow.com Image
Westporter Brandon Davis, who recently returned from a nine months residence in a remote region of Argentina as a Rotary exchange student, told the Westport Rotary Club today that, above all, he learned that “the community needs to be an extension of your family.”  Davis was the salutatorian of the Staples High School class of ‘08 and delayed his college acceptance to Princeton for one year to live in the farming community of San Vicente, 400 miles west of Buenos Aires. “I learned the value of having a community to call your own,” he said. He clutched a flag from the San Vicente Rotary Club which he presented to the Westport club. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Coastal Flood Advisory Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a coastal flood advisory for Westport and area in effect from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The high tide cycle this evening will be higher than normal due to the current phase of the moon, an advisory said.

In addition, easterly winds and ocean swells will help pile up water in western Long Island Sound this evening.

This will result in minor coastal flooding around the times of high tide, the advisory said. High tide in Westport is 11:23 p.m.

The driver was transported to the hospital by American Medical Response personnel.
