Flood Insurance Makes News Again

Sunday's Star Tribune included a story on lenders requiring flood insurance and what homeowners need to know.  An excerpt:

Some property owners said it never occurred to them that their bank could be wrong. In Wyoming, a few miles from Lindstrom, Matthew Dick didn't suspect his house could be above the flood plain until an engineer recently visited the property. He is now spending $700 to reverse his high-risk designation and get out of the $1,400-a-year policy his lender forced on him.
