In South Dakota, Flood Insurance Rates On Rise

In South Dakota, Flood Insurance Rates On Rise
PIERRE, SD -

A city official in Fort Pierre has his eye on a problem that many South Dakota residents don't recognize yet.

More than 1,600 South Dakota residents will see their federally subsidized flood insurance rates increase substantially, even after a measure signed Friday by President Barack Obama that puts the brakes on the initial 2012 overhaul.

The relief is temporary, though, as owners of subsidized homes can expect annual rate increases of up to 18 percent. The increases will affect 30 percent of those policies in Fort Pierre, as well as hundreds of policies in Watertown and Sioux Falls.

Fort Pierre Public Works Director Brad Lawrence says increased premiums will be hard to bear.

The National Flood Insurance Policy program is $24 billion in debt.
