Should have remembered that living on coasts are dangerous. Your lucky you have flood insurance because if I ran an insurance company, I would not give someone with as much inherent risk locale as this lady.

Just wondering, Mr. Adkiller. Would you give someone ins. that lives in the canyons of Calif., where fires destroy homes, or in Kansas, where killer tornados strike, with no warning, or Calif. where they have EARTHQUAKES, with no warning?

I live in Bridge City, where the entire town got flooded. This has NEVER happened here.

I agree with tootsie...also lots of areas in the country has something that could cause a major disaster. Who would have thought Iowa would have had the massive flooding they did a few months ago?

And what about the people in Missouri and Ohio, etc, that had major damage from Ike, too? What about those people? Affected by the same hurricane, too. So, it's not just coastal communities.
