Dailyherald.com: A group of East Dundee residents that united to take on the Federal Emergency Management Agency over redrawn floodplain maps might prove the agency's updated charts are incorrect.

Homeowners in the Flats neighborhood disputed FEMA maps that added about 60 homes to the designated floodplain. Mortgage companies require homeowners to carry flood insurance on houses within the area, ranging from $1,200 to $1,500 a year with a $5,000 deductible.

These homes were outside of the flood zone, according to FEMA's 2002 maps, residents said. And they say they now have proof their homes should remain outside of the area.
