If you have a lender then they will most likely inform you that flood insurance is needed due to your flood zone. Talk to an insurance agent before you purchase your home to ensure you have the property insurance in place prior to closing. If your flood zone changes your lender will inform you. You can also call an agent and ask for them to look up your flood zone and if you are in a high hazard area.
