Thanks for posting this Laura. If you dont mind, I am going to post those details on the I LOVE OCEAN COUNTY facebook page. Meanwhile, our beach survived the storms. We built up our dunes over the past few years. This Saturday is beach cleanup day.

So if it's on the FEMA maps, does it make it an official flood zone, with more folks needing flood insurance? 

And I have a question, do houses neard the ocean and bay and lagoons, get flood insurance or hurricane insurance, or both?

Just a note, Ocean County is eligible for FEMA assistance because of a damage tallies by local and state officials due, not to a hurricane, but substantial rain in early March.

Sally, I'm dreaming chocolate!!!

Laura-looks like spammers above me here...I have just reported the two comments.


I'm back to edit my comment.  That spammer was on a lot of your blog posts and apparently after I reported it they have all been removed.
