Rebuilding New Jersey and New York shore communities will take years. But the fight over the insurance money could last even longer.
More than a hundred houses in Point Pleasant, N.J., were flooded by Hurricane Sandy. But now the town is fighting new FEMA flood maps that place much of the town in the “V Zone.”
Homeowner’s insurance — as homeowners sometimes learn too late — does not cover losses caused by a hurricane storm surge.
Homeowners with no flood insurance who received direct aid payments from FEMA to fix flood damage from Sandy won’t get any help next time, the agency says — unless they buy insurance coverage from the National Flood Insurance Program.
Without an emergency appropriation from Congress, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)’s cash reserves will run out next week.
Thousands of homeowners and businesses face the challenge of recovering from that destruction, and the first line of defense for many is their flood insurance.
The methods insurance estimators use are a far cry from the way most contractors estimate.
Hurricane Sandy has generated hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of paying work for residential contractors, but that work is not going to be easy — and the money to be made is not going to be easy money either.
Life has changed radically for residents of the New Jersey barrier island towns, and for the contractors who work there.
