The City Commission of tarpon is asking the Government to hold off in this area as so many people could be affected with Flood rates as much as 10 times what they have been paying currently. The hurt to the Tampa bay economy and the Real estate markets in these areas could be devastating. The area has many older homes and the area is almost completely surrounded by water so the risk seems accurate, but now what happens to people and their homes. We will see what happens, but please read the full article below. The article is from the Tampa Bay times and was sent to me by Tamara Lush of the AP. Please call L & S Insurance at 1-888-244-7400 for quotes on Home, Auto, Flood, Business & Commercial, and Life Insurance products as well.
