City Flood Information


The City of Cannon Beach has participated in the National Flood Insurance Program since September 1, 1978. Flood insurance is available to all property owners within the City through that program. While the City has not experienced any major flooding since a tsunami associated with the Alaska Good Friday earthquake in March of 1964, the threat of tsunamis and other flood events is always present. The shaded area of the map represents those areas located in Special Flood hazard Areas (SFHA) which are subject to special development regulation. Your lender may also require that flood insurance be purchased as part of a mortgage or home improvement loan when your home or business is located in one of these areas.
