This week marked the start of the potentially busiest part of hurricane season.  With a tropical storm forming near Puerto Rico, we thought it was time for a review of hurricane preparedness.  From FEMA’s www.ready.gov site, where you can learn to prepare for any and all disasters including pandemics or even the zombie apocalypse.  
 
Before 
 
Review your insurance coverage.  It will be too late to obtain flood or windstorm insurance if a storm is declared a hurricane, and there is a 30 day waiting period to enforce any flood policy.  (See our blog about this from 2012.)
Put together a disaster kit.  A basic emergency supply kit includes the following:

    Two years ago the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act was passed by Congress, which would allow premiums to rise to reflect the true risk of living in flood-prone areas.   The idea was to keep the national flood insurance program solvent.

    Back in July we blogged about the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 which will mean big increases in flood insurance premiums starting in October.  The combination of NFIP ‘true flood risk’ increases and new federal flood zone maps is a one-two punch for homeowners and businesses at risk for flooding.  Some residents in Nassau Bay could see their rates go from $1,500 to $10,000 – possibly even $20,000 – according to City Manager Chris Reed.  (Houston Chronicle, 8/12/13)  With the new maps, officials estimate that the number of houses considered to be in the flood plain will almost double.

    With so much focus on health care reform last year, you might not have noticed that Congress passed a new flood insurance law.  On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed into law the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012, which calls on FEMA and other agencies to change the way the National Flood Insurance Program is run.
