Our wonderful government is at work once again. They have put new area of Sikeston in a flood zone. How many times in the last 50 or so years have you seen it flood on Kennedy Drive? This is sure going to help our economy . Bet the insurance people will love the move!

Well several streets in Sikeston did! Did it ever come even close to getting into any of the houses? If they change this area, just watch, more of Sikeston is coming. Did you forget that this was the worse flood in this area ever recorded?

Figure this out. Back several years ago I was told by my insurance agent that a local realtor in Sikeston wanted to build some homes in the southeast part of town which was in a flood zone. Somehow that area of town was taken out of the flood zone and the flood zone area in the southwest part of town was increased. STRANGE!

Now that the Kindergarten is in the Flood Zone, I'm sure this will affect our whole community since their insurance will be so high. The paper did not define the areas very well. Are the businesses along the northeast side of Main Street also affected ? I am referring to the hospital for one example. I can only imagine what their cost for insurance would be.

It is a joke. Only pays if your home is flooded by river water, NOT too much rain.

Sorry, but you're mistaken. Flood insurance will cover flooding caused by too much rain.

I was told by my insurance agent that in order for flood insurance to pay, your house had to be flooded around so many acres. Flooding by rain is considered an act of God and isn't covered. If u live in a flood plain and OWN ur home, you may NOT be required to buy flood insurance. That's how it used to be, and u only bought enough insurance to cover the amount u borrow. As soon as we paid off the mortgage, we dropped flood insurance. And another tidbit--flood insurance is run by the government so u pay what they tell u to and u get no discounts. Of course, the amount u pay is determined by the flood plain level in ur area. This is how it was when we bought our house several years ago.
