Mr Droz will explain the impending impact of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act and it could be very significant if you live in or near a flood plain area. It would appear the definition of what is in a flood plan is about to change substantially. (Mr. Droz is a national expert on flood insurance legislation)

 

Here are the relvant sections of the legislation :

This page has the Sea Level Rise (SLR) parts of

 

The Biggert-Waters Act — Section 512 of HR 4348

 

TITLE II—FLOOD INSURANCE

 

Subtitle A—Flood Insurance Reform and Modernization

 

SEC. 100215. TECHNICAL MAPPING ADVISORY COUNCIL (TMAC). [page 9:]

 

(d) FUTURE CONDITIONS RISK ASSESSMENT AND MODELING REPORT.

 

(1) IN GENERAL.—The Council shall consult with scientists and technical

 

experts, other Federal agencies, States, and local communities to:

 

(A) develop recommendations on how to:

 

(i) ensure that flood insurance rate maps incorporate the best available

 

climate science to assess flood risks; and

 

(ii) ensure that the Federal Emergency Management Agency uses the best

 

available methodology to consider the impact of:

 

(I) the rise in the sea level; and

 

(II) future development on flood risk; and

 

SEC. 100216. NATIONAL FLOOD MAPPING PROGRAM. [page 12:]

 

(b) MAPPING.

 

(3) OTHER INCLUSIONS.

 

In updating maps under this section, the Administrator shall include:

 

(A) any relevant information on coastal inundation from:

 

(i) an applicable inundation map of the Corps of Engineers; and

 

(ii) data of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

 

relating to storm surge modeling;

 

(B) any relevant information of the US Geological Survey on stream flows,

 

watershed characteristics, and topography that is useful in the

 

identification of flood hazard areas, as determined by the Administrator;

 

(C) any relevant information on land subsidence, coastal erosion areas,

 

changing lake levels, and other flood related hazards;

 

(D) any relevant information or data of the National Oceanic and

 

Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the US Geological Survey (USGS)

 

relating to the best available science regarding future changes in sea

 

Levels, precipitation, and intensity of hurricanes; and

 

(E) any other relevant information as may be recommended by the

 

Technical Mapping Advisory Committee (TMAC).

 

 

Mr. Droz informs us that his objective is to get as many counties as possible to study this issue and react to our congressional delegation to seek relief from this “climate change” driven absurdity. This matter has the potential of driving up Flood Insurance premiums and expanding the areas including in the flood plain such that it will impact many property owners in Eastern North Carolina, all in the name of “climate change” predictions of sea level rises.

 

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR Congressman and Senator and Let them know you want AFFORDABLE FLOOD INSURANCE
