New FEMA Coastal Maps Will Require Flood Insurance for Thousands of Homes

The new maps, which will be finalized next summer, will affect thousands of property owners across coastal Connecticut.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency earlier this year announced it would expand its coastal flood plain maps in Connecticut, which means many more properties in Milford, and other coastal towns .

According to an article by the Connecticut Post, the new coastal flood plain maps will add thousands of homes to the flood area.

The article said the new maps probably won’t be made public until sometime next summer.

It's just another tax. Most of the property owners forced to buy flood insurance will never need to use it. Just pay off your mortgage, and then you can legally drop the flood insurance.

Obviously you have never lived through the aftermath of eighteen inches of water in your house. Look around and imagine where that water level would measure in your home and make a list of everything you have just lost. Items actually float into other rooms and are covered in filth. Not to mention trying to find someone for your family and pets to live while your house is gutted and repaired. How much out of pocket money do you think you would shell out? Insured or not, the experience is devastating.
