Whoa. Check with FEMA Before Making Repairs

Check this story on WWL tonight:  residents of Slidell are being warned to check with FEMA before making repairs.  The extent to which your home was damaged could mean that you have to raise it up or face a serious hike in flood insurance premiums.

    I think this is ridiculous. What does everyone else think about it. I am about the level (10 feet) they are saying so we should be ok but why are we having to do this when Palm Lake floods everytime it rains and other houses on the other side of town have flooded like in the May flood of 95?! Are there going to be any meetings for us about this?

  2. Dana Says:

    More importantly, who is going to pay for it? Everyone knows about the problems with getting insurance to pay just to restore the house to Pre-Katrina. There is no way flood insurance can cover the cost of raising a house. And where are you supposed to live until it can be raised. You know, because FEMA has been so good about getting trailers to those that need them (note the sarcasm). I wrote about this on my website, too. Frustrating!

    There is just a lot of things wrong with all of this. Not to mention all the roofers that are now charging more than they should for fixing roofs. The ridiculous wait time for any work to get done. I’ve already heard some horror stories from my coworkers about people getting ripped off. The only way to get some good people is to use sites like ww.servicevilla.com or yahoo professionals or word of mouth.

    Anyone know if FEMA is at least helping with deductibles?
