Good news for some of those people who were hit hard by Ike:
Texas Ike victims may be eligible for additional coverage
NAMIC DAILYLEAD | 01/26/2009
Texas flood-insurance policyholders could be eligible for an additional $30,000 in coverage for Hurricane Ike damage claims. The Increased Cost of Compliance funding would be used to help pay for increased costs of complying with a building code designed to prevent and mitigate storm damage in threatened areas. Part of most National Flood Insurance Program policies, the additional aid contains other stipulations on location, degree and frequency of damage, and other factors.
More information on stipulations and such can be found here.
