Flood Insurance for current home owners is going up slowly for the next 5 years. If you buy a new home you will get the proposed prices automatically- current flood insurance owners are getting it gradually.
The flood maps have not turned out to be as bad as everyone was expecting. They did not expand them as much as they first had intended. This flood map was in the works for 5 years, so it actually had nothing to do with the 2 storms. The flood map reconfiguration took years of research prior to sandy and irene.
Flood insurance is an extra expense.... but it seems like the government is keeping it under control.
Remember their are many grants out there to lift your home above flood levels ICC Grant give you $30k
If we ever get another storm, im sure the state will be better prepared for assistance with building and grant information.
