Planning For and Coping With Floods

Sep 7, 2017

On The Point, we discuss the National Flood Insurance Program as it comes up for re-authorization by Congress. What are some of the potential changes and how might they impact us regionally? We hear about how towns on the Cape and Islands can earn reductions in flood insurance premiums for policyholders, through floodplain management practices.

Guests on the program are Shannon Jarbeau, Community Rating System and Floodplain Coordinator for Barnstable County through the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension and Sea Grant, and Joe Rossi, flood insurance specialist for Rogers and Gray Insurance Company and member of the National Flood Determination Association's legislative Committee. Mindy Todd hosts.
