The Federal Emergency Management Agency will release advisory base flood elevation maps on Saturday.

The maps provide depictions of flood hazards in Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Union counties.

The information recommends building elevations for use in reconstruction after Sandy. FEMA says the elevations will guide home and business owners through the recovery process and ensure stronger and safer rebuilding.
