Why all this fretting? The people with money will all get new homes and new cars and new roofs from socialist insurance plans. Those without money didn't have a shore home or working car anyway, so this all fixes itself.

Tat'dGreaser: indarwinsshadow: Let's get this straight. Americans don't like big government, and think universal health care is "commie"...but you want your government to bail you out when you don't have house insurance? Am I missing something..did I read that wrong?

It reads like it's more than a couple though. And why have relief at all, via FEMA, if you have disaster/house insurance? That's what it's there for. FEMA wouldn't be funded for this type of relief unless there was a requirement for it.

After Katrina, I felt bad about not feeling bad for the people who got caught in the storm's aftermath.

After Sandy, I just don't f-ing care. Sh@!t happens people, don't buy homes built on sand. If American's can somehow remember that the Earth isn't a tame lawn on which nothing bad happens then maybe we won't look like morons to the rest of the world when a NATURAL (meaning they happen naturally) disaster comes.

Just look at the Japanese after a much worse ordeal.... yeah, New Jersey, you see what whiny biatches you look like? STFU and deal with your shiat.

King of Swamp Castle: When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England.

You're taking the complaints the wrong way.

My wife, son and I we displaced by the storm. Yes we have 2 homes. We used miles for hotel rooms. Lost all the food in our fridge, paid a ton in gas to keep the basements dry. We had a good amount of damage also. We can afford to fix it, but man a loan would help out a lot. We're insured, but it's not that easy to get someone to work on stuff ASAP when we 'promise' that insurance will pay.
Dry ice was not given out to us, we didn't qualify. Lost (guessing) $500 in food because of that, we didn't have freezers full of steaks, it was mostly healthy baby type products. It's not something you can easily buy (Dry Ice). I had to wait on lines with gas cans to keep the generators running (Sump pumps, not heat), FEMA was giving gas to those who qualify. Also a guess but maybe $7,500 in property damage.
Laundry list of things.

Anyway we won't get anything from the government. I don't think we deserve a hand out, but we don't deserve to have to work harder than others. We work hard, and pay our dues, and rarely complain that we get nothing in return. This is one of the times where we could use a hand, not cash, just support, but sadly none.

Not "displaced" if you have a second home, and if you do, you had better have worked harder than others.

I have two sailboats, and no car. Evidently, I prefer sailboats.

If one of either of my sailboats sank, I am insured to (eventually) replace it and I would not be "displaced from sailing".

2) Do you keep a supply of non-perishable food in your home for emergencies? No? You're a moron
3) Do you keep a supply of extra essential medicines you need for emergencies? No? You're a moron
4) Do you keep a supply of cash, or other forms of currency around for emergencies? No? You're a moron
5) Do you own a firearm? No? Well, maybe you're not a moron. But if you answered yes to 1-4, the armed strangers wandering around during emergencies might say thank you.
6) Did you consider the land on which you purchased your home and what the house would need to survive 100-year-frequency disasters? No? You're a fool if you don't
7) Did you make any modifications to the home for disasters, like a storm shelter for tornadoes or a backup generator for power outages? No? That's not very smart, is it?
8) Did you consider how you would contact immediate and extended family if you needed to flee? No? tsk tsk...
9) Do you have sufficient tools at home to fix most anything that might happen? For instance, if you have large trees on your property that might topple, do you own a gas chainsaw? No? that's just sad...

You... you had $500 worth mostly of perishable baby health food... and two homes... and generators... and you want government disaster relief assistance after a huge storm hit that left hundreds of thousands of people without any power, food, water, or any home at all because your perishable stockpiled food went bad and gas for those generators is expensive? Dude, I have no sympathy for you.

JacksonBryan: ThatGuyGreg: TFA:

FEMA won't award grants for damage to second homes.

Good. Fark 'em, that's what insurance is for.

It won't duplicate benefits paid by private insurance, so homeowners must settle claims before FEMA will evaluate, said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate.

Also good.

And most of its recovery aid comes in the form of low-interest disaster loans, he said.

I'm ok with that too. Being a victim isn't winning the lottery; you still have to be a grownup.

I lost everything in Sandy. Fortunately for a 20-something bachelor that works pretty much all the time, 'everything' was some hand-me-down furniture, an XBOX360 and some towels. The floors and walls are shot, but when you live in a tiny bungalow it really isn't worth paying for the flood insurance, unless you live RIGHT on the water and are at risk for a total loss ie. your home is floating in the Bay and your lot is now a boat slip.

FEMA came yesterday to bail me out :) My income was low enough to definitely get some halp, primary residence and all. Yay for being poor! You're better off saving your own money anyway. Insurance companies are out to make you work real hard for your payout, especially for water damage.

The worst part so far was the horrendous stomach bug I picked up from the past week spent cleaning up shiat soaked in dirty water. I washed my hands like a fiend but I'm still "pissin' out my ASS" (in Tourette's Guy voice) every 45 minutes or so. Chugging bottled water just to keep my pee stream clear and not copper-orange dehydrated smelly colored.

No, you didn't "pay in". This isn't an insurance pool. You didn't bother to buy that. This is emergency relief for people who are in danger of losing everything and ending up homeless. If you have a second home, that isn't you.

Hopefully, things clear up for you (and the region) in the next few days, weeks, months. A friend of mine lost her home for at least a month - their 4- and 2-year olds with them - and will have to get by on the kindness of strangers.

But two things that you should realize:
1. This was not a standard storm. According to early analysis, it was a 500-year flood - a .2% annual chance this type of flood happens. Over a 30-year mortgage, this chance balloons to (I think, someone else can check my math) 5%. A 100-year flood (1% annual chance) has a 26% chance of hitting during a 30-year mortgage. Nonstandard means many people will need help, and anyone can tell you that triage is the best way to go. If everyone's alive and you have a place to go (and two nickels to rub together), you're on your own. Out of necessity to the people with more serious problems.
2. Part of responsible home ownership - especially near a waterway or coastline (hell, in any flood zone) - is hazard mitigation. FEMA gives out grants, pre-disaster, to people who want to protect their homes by raising them, strengthening them, building berms or floodwalls. FEMA has an entire database dedicated to mitigation best practices. The time to get health insurance is not when you get sick. It's an expensive lesson to learn, and unfortunately, most homeowners learn it this way.

If you think of home ownership the way you think of your health ("body ownership"), why wouldn't you get your house "checked up" every year or two? Why wait for a freak (as "freak" as a 1-in-4 chance over the life of your mortgage can be, anyway) storm to expose your weaknesses? Pay the $600/year for the NFIP. Get a pre-disaster grant. Make sure (even if those two don't happen) you know your flood risk - get a floodplain map, if you have to (I think they're $5 if you buy them from FEMA).

Not to sound callous. I hope you and yours make it through everything OK.

White people problems are so much duller than dead black people floating face down in toxic waste water for a week or two while the ineffectual, corrupt, and partisan feds do nothing and the stupid cracker police shoot willy-nilly at every non-white person they see, creating and maintaining the illusion that Africanized-American looters are shooting people when in fact most of the potential looters are quietly and sadly waiting for help seeing as they are the 47% and therefore fat, lazy, stupid, dependant, non-white Democratic Party voters, not bootstrapy strong Libertarian white men like the average looter.

Speaking of state-sponsored criminal classes, how are the super-rich and other Republicans holding out uptown? Do they take comfort that they have won the battle, even as they lose the war? Does the fact that the 47% downtown are starving, with power and unable to post to their Facebook and Twitter accounts console them for their losses on the political front?

After all, Katrina gave Republicans just what they wanted, as did the Bush administration. But with Obama in office, there's actually a snowball's chance in Hell poor people will receive, to use an unpopular four letter word, H-E-L-P, if only after the Election.

I hope they vote in record numbers. At least they'll be able to keep warmer in line for a polling booth. Maybe they can burn their ballots or use them for toilet paper. A good and proper use for ballots in a completely farked-up democracy, I feel and think.

Nature and God have once again shiat upon the Republican Party Platform. And I'm not just tallking about the Richard the Third standing there befuddled by so many lies he can't remember what he said a moment ago let alone yesterday.

When I was on the phone with my insurance company after buying my new house, they asked if I had considered supplemental flood insurance. I looked out my front window, down the hill atop which my home sits, several hundred feet down to the tiny rivulet of a stream that I can see if I pull out my binoculars, far, far, far away from any significant water source that isn't seriously subterranean. I said "Ma'am, if this house ever needs flood insurance, we've got a whole lot more to worry about than water in the basement."

The rest I've got covered.

You're absolutely confident that your house can withstand water falling from the sky (frozen or liquid), that no storm surge can touch you, that no wind-driven water will get behind the outer boundary of your house, that the land won't soak and seep in from underneath...you're not expecting any severe rainstorms so long as you live in that house on the hill, forever and ever, amen?

Good luck.

// and also, if you live outside a floodplain, your policy would cost almost nothing

Just in case anyone is looking for a floodmap in the US - they are freely available online at https://msc.fema.gov/. Be aware that they do not map all streams and almost never cover storm water runoff. They may also contain older data - flood prone areas change based on a lot of factors, including buildings and parking lots (this particularly applies to smaller streams).

You were running generators but couldn't run an extension to keep your freezer running? $500 of food, especially something less value-dense than steak, should take several days to defrost in a properly managed freezer, no dry ice required.

One of these people had an uninsured mobile home that wasn't even her primary residence. She was angry that FEMA wouldn't buy her a new one.

After the Yellowstone Caldera goes, the Weenerss once internet service is restored in Europe and Asia will be along the lines of "well, it was their fault for settling North America".

right, because every so many years it blows and wipes out those who built arround it and yet they keep rebuilding. And once that asteroid hit the earth, the martians will be saying "well, it was their fault for settling earth"

mjohnson71: I very little sympathy for people who built vacation homes right by the ocean and just a few feet above sea level.


I have very little sympathy for people with vacation homes. Some people whose homes were destroyed have nowhere else to go, these farkers can just move.

super_grass: Remember when Fark collectively shat its pants when Ron Paul suggested that people buy insurance after the Tennessee flooding?

What happened to that "we don't need no corpurashuns" attitude now?


Government is there to provide bear-minimum safety nets, no replace private industry entirely. At least you got some quality false equivocating going on there though, bless your heart.
