From theFEMA website:

On March 2, 2010, Congress passed and the President signed H.R. 4691, which extends the NFIP through March 28, 2010. The extension was not made retroactive at this time; however, Congress is considering legislation that would make it retroactive. - The National Flood Insurance Program.

Homeowners should check their coverage & homebuyers should check with their insurance companies for coverage advice & possible solutions available.
