National Flood Insurance Program
Recently, there have been major changes made to the National Flood Insurance Program. The changes were passed by Congress in July of 2012 and, for some, may result in large premium rate increases to current and new flood insurance policies in the near future. All homeowners, business owners and future property owners are encouraged to learn about these changes and how their policies may be affected. We recommend that you contact your insurance provider directly for more details.
