Just added the official FEMA flood hazard map to my list of tools that I share with everyone here:

Research Reno Real Property Issues

Included in the list is the flood map provided by Washoe County and the flood map provided by FEMA, so you can check two sources when you are trying to decide if you want to purchase flood insurance.

Washoe County has been a member of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) since 1984. NFIP membership makes available federally-backed flood insurance for all structures, whether or not they are located within the floodplain. Because NFIP imposes a 30-day waiting period, residents should plan accordingly to ensure coverage during the flooding season.

Here is the direct link to the FEMA map:
