NEW PRICING: This article demonstrates the untold confusion many homeowners are facing regarding the new FEMA flood maps and their ramifications. We are painfully aware of the new consequences.

Hey! I knoow this iss kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could
get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours
and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
I’d help you if I could. I’m not certain what a captcha does. Did you try the widgets section?
$20,000 for insurance? Holy cow!
I know, right? There is a maximum payout per flood of $250,000 per event (for residential property, double for commercial property). At that price, you almost hope to flood to at least feel like you’re getting your money’s worth.
