We got money from FEMA. Without it, we'd be in a hole. And after years of paying plenty of taxes, I ain't ashamed to say I gladly accepted the help.
Just curious as to how much FEMA paid vs. what Flood Insurance would have paid? I think the max FEMA pays is $35K for an individual homeowner? Flood Insurance pays up to $250K.
