They say if you get the Flood Insurance in time you will be "grandfathered" in. Well, what if you want to sell your home in a few years? Do you lose that status? And is anyone going to insure the next owner if it is in the "floodplain" at a rate that isn't outlandish or are you sitting on an unmarketable property?

When does it end? I love LI but give me a break - its way too expensive to live here.

We are told LI is a flood hazard but look what happened in the mid-West last month with all the floods from rivers. There is more flooding away from the beaches due to all the rivers so we actually have to pay for them.
