I believe Flood insurance is a federal program.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flood_insurance

Here in Florida, they redesigned the 100 year flood plan and MOST of Florida is in a flood prone area.

Once you have gotten "damage" from flooding, I am sure your next renewal premium reflects that. I am in an area that may be flooded once in a hundred years... the lowest of the risk areas for flooding. After a disaster, if you are eligible for a low-interest federal loan, I think you still need to pay it back? But who knows.

What place is immune to natural disasters?
Arizona. We got heat and that's it.

Glad we went to Hatteras Island camping Last month. May take some time before they open back up depending how hard they were hit.

It's saturday morning. The storm visited there on Thursday and it's still in the same place. The amount of rain they are getting must be gigantic...

I liked the video of the fake news of the hurricane. Showed a reporter on the Weather Channel bracing the high winds and then a couple of guys come strolling by in the background. All hype. Yes there's going to be some flooding and some damage but it's nowhere near what was hyped. And the media is trying to keep the hype going. Sad.

Anybody got a good deal on a boat?

We have had about 6.5" of rain and still have another 24 hours or so to go.

Power was out for about 17 hours due to quite a few downed trees that took out a few transformers. Our awesome line crews from South River EMC got it taken care of.

Everybody makes their choices on where they want to live. I don't do dry heat.

As far as building on the barrier islands that is a matter of politics and too much money in many cases.

As far as Florida is concerned, there was a statement made by an Army Officer that was sent down there to squelch the Seminoles. His comment was basically that; it was a bug infested hell hole and the US would be well served by putting a fence at the border and letting the alligators and Seminole keep it!

Let it be know that SOMEDAY, I will be moving to Boone! BUT, until then, I will just settle for watching the sunset from mallory square occasionally.
