The progress report is required as part of the Thurston County’s recertification under the National Flood Insurance Community Rating System. Because the county has completed several flood mitigation and preparedness actions and received a Community Rating System score of four, residents of unincorporated Thurston County can get as much as a 30 percent discount for flood insurance. That’s up from 25 percent for flood insurance rate discounts in 2012.
