NFIP Logo 8 1Let’s say your house has been flooded and you seek assistance from the federal government.  You do not have flood insurance.  Do you have any options?

That is an issue Louisiana Commissioner Jim Donelon and I discussed on Wednesday on our Facebook Live interview.

While Louisiana had a very high per capita flood-insurance coverage in comparison to other states, it also leads the nation in flood damage events.  This is why Jim Donelon advocates and emphasizes that everyone obtains flood insurance, even if it might appear that your property is at low risk.

According to Donelon, the flood in March resulted in 5,000 claims being filed by policyholders of the national flood insurance program with an average payment of fifty-three thousand dollars for each of those claims.  You other options are to file as an underinsured or uninsured through FEMA but the average amount you can recover is substantially less.

Also, Donelon said, you can apply for SBA loan but this could result in a your property being mortgaged, eating into your equity.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
