Does anybody know where there might be some good/current FEMA data?

I am interested specifically in the LOMA data for Florida.

I have found a WMS Service that is hosted by FEMA but I'm having trouble actually bringing it into ArcMap.

The PDF tells you how to consume the wms services

You need to know the layers and location you are interested in before you request the data.

This mapviewer consumes that service.

This is a KML for Google Earth using that data:

Right, I can connect to a WMS Server and bring the service into ArcMap, my issue is that I am getting drawing errors whenever I zoom. My ultimate goal is to be able to reference the LOMA layer in my javascript app. – Craig Dec 4 '12 at 20:55
