President Obama passed the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act today. That is welcome news not only for Florida homeowners but particularly Pinellas County homeowners.
You see, Pinellas County is a peninsula that is surrounded on three sides by the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. The Palm Harbor area has some of the highest elevations in the entire county but when you are waterfront, it does not matter since you are on the edge of a large body of water.
The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act is good news to the entire nation but especially to Pinellas County, since our county is a peninsula on a peninsula!
