Are you kidding me? This is ridicilious! Grant it home owners purchased flood insurance last minute, however even the insurance agents who sold it to them were not aware of the June 1 cut off. Which means they really needed to purchase flood insurance by May 1, 2011 for it to be effective and active by June 1,2011. REALLY! If the agents did not know this or get the memo until May 2011 then how the heck would the residents even know this? No one received a letter in the mail or a flyer on the door that indicated this info home flood insurance! And was their a bill board some where that advertised that when they open the damns up North then that became the official notice of flooding? Hmmm... the billboard must have been in located in a swamp land somewhere! I am sure that FEMA nor any of the insurance company's who so willing took the residence money had ANY intention what so ever to make this known to the residence. It is all about the mighty $$$.
Shame on all of them, they are as much of a scam as the actual scammer's that are walking the streets of Council Bluffs telling people to evacuate so they can steal the contents of their homes.
The ONLY difference is that with the INSURANCE company's it is considered legal! Shame on them ALL of them! It is these kinds of actions and these kind of people that bring down the greatness of what this country truly once was. Our country in spiraling down a path with consequences that are greater ( like this flood) then anyone understands! I don't even live near Iowa, but i don't have to be there to care and to sympathize. I am very concerned about who is helping the elderly? All of you are in my prayers
