My parent's are 87 & 85. Their home was in Eagle Point, Biloxi.(25 yrs.) How much time do they have left in life to rebuild their home, be able to afford the insurance and new rules for re-building. They probably won't live long enough to do that. Right now they are in Georgia, renting in the middle of a hayfield. The insurance compainies will drive people out of Biloxi. My parents made their home there for 25 years, their friends, their church and planned on being their the rest of their life. They lost everything they owned. There is no way they can come back and build in the time they have left in life. God bless all those people, mostly the ones that the insurance companies won't pay. I wonder do those people (insurance co.) sleep well at night???
