NJ Flood Insurance In December?

(John O’Boyle/The Star-Ledger)  

It seems like a farfetched idea thinking about NJ flood insurance during the winter months. But recently an article released by NJ.com reported that the mayors of six towns along the Rahway River — all hit by flooding
following Hurricane Irene — suggest that now is the time to invest in
flood-control measures. How can you argue with that?

Leaders from
Union and Essex counties  had asked Governor Christie for more than $20 million to fund a
program to help control the flood problem. They suggested building
floodwater storage areas or control structures can slow the pace of the river. It’s no secret that residents in the area have inadequate flood protection – and this problem will likely happen again.

A response is still in the works from Christie’s office, but until then one question still remains. Will you be prepared for the next flood? Make sure your house is covered with NJ flood insurance. Now is a better time than any to invest.
