Attention Minot! Is FEMA Trying To Tell Us Something?

We received 43" of snow in a short amount of time and all the climatological experts have been telling us that it will have no bearing on spring run-off or flooding...

So why did FEMA send out thousands of brochures on flood insurance to local Realtors this week?

FEMA literature

This is just SOME of the literature FEMA sent me this week. I/our Real Estate agency has never received information from FEMA in the past so I'm wondering if they are trying to tell us something.

If you would like to stop in and pick up information on FEMA and flood insurance stop in soon before it's gone.

Having been a victim of the 2011 flood I will say that if you live in the flood plain and you do not have flood insurance you are crazy! I am sure glad I did, it paid to have my entire home rebuilt and when it was all over it was totally paid for. Not bad for an annual premium of less than $500.00.

RealMan, I would think that FEMA is trying to tell you something.  It wants you to be sure you "sell" clients the need for flood insurance.

I hope that is all there is to it Kathleen Daniels but I am sure glad I had it when we flooded in 2011. Of the thousands of homes flooded less than 10% had flood insurance.

I need to move some of their literature Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington so you can see the top of my furnature again .

Good Evening Bob - in a designated flood plain flood insurance is an absolute must.  We don't see premiums like that around here.

Great warning, Bob. As you know, personally, floods, whatever the cause, are no laughing matter to be taken lightly and a life altering event.
