Congress Extends Flood Insurance Program

 The National Flood Insurance Program, which provides flooding coverage across the nation, expired yesterday, June 1st. Coincidentally, June 1st also marks the first official day of hurricane season, a fact that alarmed both coastal citizens and the U.S. Government. “It is completely unacceptable for the Congress to allow flood insurance authorization to lapse during hurricane season,” said Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.  Because of this, an extension until September 30 was approved by congress, in order to ensure ongoing coverage though what will most likely become another destructive year for the massive maritime storms. Hopefully, because of this legislation, there will be a smaller number cowering in fear at the sound of the generic, nursing-home-esque hurricane names.
