265K homes in Fort Lauderdale and Broward county will be removed from required flood zones and about 31K will be added to it. Everyone needs to remember that the definition of Flood coverage from a claim is more than just tidal waves and many people have Floods during Tropical storms & Hurricanes. Seepage and other issues can happen to anyone, anywhere as well, so please do not remove the flood policy from FEMA. You are able to purchase Preferred flood for about $365 per year or 1 dollar a day. Always remember that Insurance companies like to deny claims from water damage. If you have Flood Insurance, then you know you are always covered from water damage, but if you do not then it could be an uphill battle against an Insurance company with tons of money to fight the claim.
