CoreLogic Analysis Shows More Than 50 Percent of Properties in Houston at High and Moderate Risk of Flood Are Not in Designated Flood Zones

IRVINE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 28, 2017 — CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, has conducted an analysis for the flooding occurring as a result of Hurricane Harvey. This analysis shows that 52 percent of residential and commercial properties in the Houston metro are at “High” or “Moderate” risk of flooding, but are not in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Properties within SFHA zones, categorized as Extreme or Very High risk, require flood insurance if the property has a federally insured mortgage. Properties outside SFHA zones are not required to carry flood insurance.
