Flood Prevention, Protection, Maps & Other Flood-Related Information
Much of the Town of Kill Devil Hills is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area and is susceptible to flooding from a variety of sources including nor’easters, tropical storms, hurricanes and prolonged rain events. It is important to know and understand what flood zone your property is located within to determine the associated risk.
Kill Devil Hills participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) which makes flood insurance available for property owners. To reduce flood insurance premiums and promote flood awareness, the Town also participates in the Community Rating System (CRS).
