HAWAII

January 28, 2017 – The fun part of reviewing is seeing how things are done in different markets.  I ran into two items I have not seen before.

The subject is not within a tsunami evacuation zone.

Well, I guess that is something to worry about over there.  I have not seen such for properties along the West Coast of the mainland though.  Maybe, just not a big issue for the mainland versus Hawaii.

Zone D is defined as areas where there are possible but undetermined flood hazards, as no analysis of flood hazards has been conducted. Not within a Special Flood Hazards Area but within 250 feet of Zone
AE.

I have not encountered Flood Zone D before.  This particular property is in Honolulu.  It doesn’t seem like it would be a tough place to determine a flood zone for.

As they say, you learn something every day.  I learned two things:)
