Blue Box  Myrtle Beach residents with property in the floodplain are eligible for a 25 percent reduction on their flood insurance premiums, thanks to the city’s Class 5 ISO rating for flood insurance.  Residents outside the floodplain are eligible for a 10 percent savings on flood insurance.  Myrtle Beach received the Class 5 rating from the Insurance Services Organization in early 2003.  Only 50 communities in the nation have a Class 5 rating, and just six have a rating better than Class 5.
