Hi Tom:

NFIP only covers your house up to $250K which doesn't include most of what is in your basement, any separate structures and contents is a separate coverage with a separate deductible. Commercial up to $500K. Above that you have to go to outside carriers. The reason the country went into flood is that most people couldn't afford the coverage. Even then you have to have an elevation certificate for post firm dwellings. Rental. Your rate goes up or down based on how close you are to the BFE (base flood elevation - plus or minus). There are alot of other requirements that basically force people to rebuild up to current flood code.

Alternatives for people who need more coverage is to find an outside carrier, or write a difference in conditions (DIC) policy. Outside carriers tend to not like people with prior losses. I wrote one where I had to say how far from the coast, the elevation above the base flood elevation, etc.

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
