Parker Tornadoes

By  | 

Families in Parker ravaged by tornados during Hurricane Ivan are getting a little more relief than others in the state. FEMA officials say property owners in Parker will pay less for flood insurance.

The new flood insurance premiums took affect Oct. 1 reflecting actions the community took to educate residents about flooding, zoning rules and building regulations.

Parker city officials enforce rules for storm water management, provide ongoing drainage maintenance, make flood zone information readily available, and maintain a flood warning program.
