(A)   The degree of flood protection provided by this chapter is considered reasonable for regulatory purposes and is based upon engineering experience and scientific methods of study. Increased flooding may result from causes beyond the control of any governmental authority. This chapter does not, therefore, guarantee that areas outside the floodplain or permitted land uses within the floodplain will be free from flooding and associated damages.
   (B)   Nothing in this chapter shall be construed or applied in any manner to create liability on the part of or a cause of action against the county, any municipality or other governmental authority, or any elected official, or any officer, agent, or employee of any of the foregoing, or any certified review specialist for any flood damage resulting from reliance on the provisions of this chapter.
