Moderate to Low-Risk Areas Louisiana Flood Zone Map
In communities that participate in the NFIP, flood insurance is available to all property owners and renters in these zones:

Flood Zone X  Area of moderate flood hazard, usually the area between the limits of the 100‐year and 500‐year floods. B Zones are also used to designate base floodplains of lesser hazards, such as areas protected by levees from a 100‐year flood, or shallow flooding areas with average depths of less than one foot or drainage areas less than 1 square mile. Does not Require Flood Insurance.

High-Risk Areas Louisiana Flood Zone Map
In communities that participate in the NFIP, mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply to all of these zones:

Flood Zone A areas with a 1% annual chance of flooding and a 26% chance of flooding over the life of a 30‐year mortgage. Because detailed analyses are not performed for such areas; no depths or base flood elevations are shown within these zones. Does require flood insurance.

Flood Zone AE The base floodplain where base flood elevations are provided. AE Zones are now used on new format FIRMs instead of A1‐A30 Zones. Does require flood insurance.
