The Cost Home Owners Insurance in Florida has gone through the roof.I have been watching the news coverage from here and I don't envy those going through it. There is nothing nastier to deal with than "flood damage". Even for those who have suffered less structural damage, once something gets soaked, it's usually ruined and will end up in a pile in your front yard.
There was this guy on TV from Florida, who has lived there his entire life, said that some of these communities that were hard hit should never have been built in the first place. They were built over displaced wetlands (by huckster developers) to build homes and retirement communities on them and now they are starting to pay the price for that. They weren't wetlands for thousands of years for no reason. In addition, they are starting to become harder to get insured due to insurers going bankrupt. Just something to think about.
