Roughly 50 members from the Hatteras Island community – which included Realtors, business owners, surveyors, local insurance companies, and other professionals – attended a meeting on Thursday, Jan. 12, all about the new preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (or FIRMs) that were introduced on June 30 of last year.

The meeting, which was held by N.C Emergency Management in conjunction with staff from the Dare County Planning Department, was structured to provide an overview of the procedures guiding the new FIRMs’ development, as well as to answer questions from the island community about how local residences and businesses would be affected.

Congressman MacArthur plans to fix NFIP during Congressional Re-authorization in the latter half of 2017

FEMA and the NFIP find their newest watchdog in a Jersey Shore Congressman who’s been an outspoken critic of both since the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Congressman Tom MacArthur had called for FEMA director’s resignation, investigation into federal flood insurance program.

Congressman Tom MacArthur (R-3) occupies a seat on the House Financial Services Committee which has primary responsibilities in matters of the national economy, banks, housing, insurance, and securities. He will use this position to fix the NFIP.

THIS IS HAPPENING IN ALL 22,000 FLOOD ZONE COMMUNITIES NATIONALLY

"As communities across the region, state and country push back against the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s expansion of flood plains into certain residential areas, residents of Mayfield PA hope a January meeting with the agency brings compromise.

Fearing an expanded flood plain would negatively affect property values and require homeowners to buy costly flood insurance, hundreds of Mayfield residents signed a petition urging U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-17, Moosic, and Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey to oppose FEMA’s expansion late last summer. Mayfield officials met with representatives of the congressman and senators in December, and the parties plan to meet with FEMA and the state Department of Environmental Protection later this month.

Meet Laurie Futch and Eddie Derouen – SFN members who raised their homes once… Now they have to raise it again!

If you are raising your home we urge you to raise as high as possible above FEMA's BFE (Base Flood Elevation)

FEMA continually updates their maps and is currently working on adding sea level rise and storm surge into their flood maps, which will drastically raise their required elevation.

For the homeowners who are not raising their homes you will see drastic flood insurance premiums, making most of their homes unaffordable.

Stop FEMA now

FEMA has been abusing NY and NJ residents for 4 years... Don't let FEMA push you guys around.

"Congressman Pallone began drafting the legislation after hearing from New Jersey residents that were treated unfairly by FEMA, private insurance companies or both in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy." "In May, Pallone led another bipartisan letter from members of the New Jersey Congressional delegation requesting that FEMA take swift action on behalf of those who have suffered from fraud and for an explanation of why it is taking FEMA so long to process insurance claims from Sandy."

FEMA's new flood maps will save NYC homeowners from a deluge of insurance costs

Everyone of the 22,000 flood zone communities across the country need to fight the flood maps using New York City's methodology.

It will save thousands of dollars per person, per year.

Millions of homes would be taken out out of the flood zone too!

Changes could mean fewer will need coverage in the first place

Couple struggles with fed post-flood

“We were penalized for having flood insurance."

"Darilyn and Booley Genre learned the hard way that doing what they considered the right thing does not pass muster with federal agencies after a natural disaster.

The Denham Springs couple thought they had gone above and beyond to ensure their South River Road home would not flood. They built it one foot above the 100-foot flood level based on the 1983 benchmark.

The Genres kept $30,000 flood insurance on their home, a move that backfired when FEMA rejected their request for assistance to fix their home.

“In the eyes of FEMA, it would’ve been better to have no flood insurance,” Booley said.

The Genres eventually secured a $104,000 SBA loan, but the agency slashed the amount to $20,000 – the amount the homeowners insurance agreed to pay.

“We’re pretty much responsible for anything not covered by SBA,” Darilyn said. “We were penalized for having flood insurance.

“It’s typical government,” she said. “People who pay their bills, follow the rules and pay their own way are the ones who get shafted by government.”

DENHAM SPRINGS — Darilyn and Booley Genre learned the hard way that doing what they considered the right thing does not pass muster with federal agencies after a natural disaster.

On Your Side: Shreveport homeowner struggles to get flooded home repaired

Coming to North Carolina Soon!

WATCH NEWSCAST;
I drove down to Louisiana, about a month ago, to see if FEMA / NFIP have changed and are actually helping people and paying homeowners promptly and fairly. Watch newscast and let us know your experience.

Here are comments from Mr. Tommy Sparks - ""We all keep hearing, 'Oh we're gonna take care of you thru our FEMA or our insurance's and they're not!" Sparks professed. "People need to know that they're not. So don't count on it. Don't expect that unless you have somewhere to live while all that goes on," continued Sparks, clearly frustrated.

Sparks says for 2 months, he and his pregnant fiance have been fighting with insurers to either fix his home or put them in a functional place to live. The answer: NO!

"I was denied everything I've tried," swears Sparks."
