MEDIA STATEMENT

In response to the decision by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to review and revise its proposed flood zone maps, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

“We applaud the efforts of FEMA to reevaluate the proposed flood zone maps. The initial recommendation could have been devastating for residents, businesses, and the Grand Strand economy, in general. By using better technology and the most up-to-date data, we anticipate FEMA will develop a much more accurate map.”
