Yes, you can look at FEMA's website, or a realtor can guide you as well if you are looking for a specific property.

I'm not sure which county you are looking in but you can use the GIS maps. Fort Bend's is here. https://fbcgis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/OnePane/basicviewer/index.html?appid=48c56fd022e24c5489bf3707a335276f Go to Layers and turn on the Current National Flood Hazard layer. There are a lot of other layers you can turn on as well, such as ETJ maps if you are outside of the city limits. This will allow you to see which City can annex your area one day.

Harris County has one also. Go to the Basemap at the top. When you click on that, you will see a check box for turning on the FEMA Flood Zones. https://arcweb.hcad.org/parcelviewer/

Perhaps the most accurate place to determine whether the property is in, near or out of the various flood zones is FEMA Flood Map site.

Hello. You asked about "flooding areas", but you should also consider areas of "subsidence" in my opinion. Flooding is only half of the story when purchasing a home in Houston. Maps can be found here: https://hgsubsidence.org/

Please be aware that during some events, property not in flood areas (according to FEMA maps) flooded! If you are trying to avoid flooding, there are several things to consider. Flooding is a "risk" anywhere, as is any disaster. The important part is to mitigate that risk according to your personal tolerance level. In business, we hire consultants and experts to do this. As a consumer, you can do the same. Hire a Realtor that has the knowledge and skill to advise you according to your specific needs. I personally have a background in water resource and environmental management in Texas and I ended up in a neighborhood that flooded unexpected. Call me if you would like to discuss!

One easy to use website is flood.walterpmoore.com . You have to set up a free account but it's extremely easy to use.

When you are looking at houses, in the "Map" section of Matrix, you can see if the house you're looking at is in a flood zone by selecting the filter. The only downside is you have to be pretty zoomed in to see the flood zones.
