LOBIONDO: NEW FLOOD MAPS “ALMOST CONDEMNING PROPERTIES”

Some strong words from New Jersey Congressman Frank LoBiondo regarding new proposed FEMA flood  maps that have been signed into law by Governor Chris Christie.  In a report in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer, LoBiondo says quote “FEMA is almost condemning properties the way they are handling this” and he says that new flood maps must have a semblance of the real word.  The new flood maps require some homes to be elevated or their owners could face very high flood insurance premiums.
