FEMA Announces That eLOMA Is Available Again
The other day I told you FEMA announced that the eLOMA process was temporarily unavailable. Also, FEMA would not be issuing Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA).
This was because Congress did not reauthorize funding for FEMA, along with other programs such as extension of the current highway bill and funding for extending federal unemployment benefits, the National Flood Insurance Program’s authorities expired on February 28, 2010.
I'm happy to announce that I've received another notice from FEMA saying that eLOMA is available again. Here's the notice:
"Attention eLOMA Users:
eLOMA is Available
eLOMA services have been restored and business activities have resumed.
Please contact FEMA’s Map Information eXchange (FMIX) at 1-877-FEMA-MAP (1-877-336-2627), if you need additional information.
The MIP Team"
A lot of you have contacted me to let me know how serious an issue this was to your land surveying and engineering businesses, so I'm glad to see this issue has been resolved.
