The degree of flood protection required by this chapter is considered reasonable for regulatory purposes and is based on scientific and engineering considerations. Larger floods may occur. Flood heights may be increased by manmade or natural causes. This chapter does not imply that land outside the areas of special flood hazards or uses permitted within such areas will be free from flooding or flood damage. This chapter shall not create liability on the part of the city, any elected and appointed official or any employee thereof, or the Federal Insurance Administration, for flood damages that result from reliance on this chapter or any administrative decision lawfully made hereunder.
