My State Farm flood insurance was $115 a year for the last 5 years. Then I was informed FEMA would be taking over ALL flood insurance in the state.
This summer I got the FEMA letter, hustling me for $298 to continue my coverage with a much higher deductible. It came with a hot pink return envelope and the usual hard sell scare tactics.
Screw FEMA. No way I'm sending them a dime.
