Homeowners Hope Congress Acts Quickly

September 21, 2010


We find ourselves once again waiting on our elected officials to make a decision to extend the National Flood Insurance Program.  The current status of the program is still up in the air, however, passage of an extension may come before the September 30 deadline.  This is an issue that has plagued us all year with a lapses in coverage lasting from a few days to several weeks.  We can only hope that our officials in Congress are watching the weather as closely as we are.

Rainy days in Katy Texas could spell trouble without flood insuranceWe are in the height of hurricane season, and several waves have developed off of the African coast.  Fortunately for us none have made a huge impact on the lower 48, but as Hermine demonstrated, a storm does not have to be a severe hurricane to cause a majot flooding event.  Remeber Tropical Storm Allison?  Residents who went through that storm learned a lesson for the ages about flooding and the inmportance of protecting your home with flood insurance.

If you have questions about your home or your insurance coverage just give us a call at 281-398-2015.  We are always happy to help.  Let's hope Congress takes care of business and, in the meantime, I hope we all stay high and dry!
