To comply with federal guidelines as they stand now might cost more than $5 billion, according to a conservative Crain's estimate based on case studies and interviews with experts. That's a steep price for middle-class homeowners and landlords.

There are less than 200,000 homes in NY state in a flood zone.How much will it cost to raise the other 5,300,000 homes in a flood zone across the nation?

"FEMAemployees told the Pardis to elevate their home by at least five feet through stilts to comply with its requirements and qualify for a building permit. The prohibitive cost of installing stilts – estimated by the Pardis at $150,000 – was simply too much for the family to absorb. "

"Todd and Charlene Pardi are still battling a federal agency to rebuild and reoccupy their Fairfield Drive residence.

Because of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, it may be awhile before – or if – they return home.

On Oct. 2, the Pardis won a favorable ruling at a hearing in Taunton for a variance from the Massachusetts Board of Building Regulations and Standards, ostensibly giving them approval to reconstruct their home without elevating it. However, FEMA communicated to the BBRS prior to the hearing that granting the variance would result in legal action against the Pardis along with imposition of stiff fines."

“It was intimidating,” she said. “Technically, we won, but it doesn’t mean we are yet insurable.”
