It's a shame! So these poor people have no recourse? They can't even get flood insurance?! The La Huerta residents should all get together and sue to get changes done! The squeaky wheel gets the grease!

I have to agree with you! There's power in numbers, and people need to get together and do something about this and not just sit and whine. It's one of those situations where no one wants to take the blame!

Work on your reading comprehension skills, why doncha. The Johnson's plainly state in the article, "Although we are not in the flood plain, although it is expensive, I'm going to get flood insurance," she said."
It may not be required, but flood insurance IS available.

Who are you going to sue and what would you even sue them for? Please elaborate on that painfully stupid comment please.

They can get flood insurance, they just chose not to. And as they are not in a FEMA defined flood zone, it would probably only be a couple of hundred a month. I live in a flood zone across from North Shore and my flood insurance is only $700/year for $350,000 in coverage. People should always get flood insurance, even if they don't live in a flood zone. You never know what will happen.

Sorry, I meant a couple of hundred a year.
