See the full video at https://youtu.be/vagB8jKN4M4  Since floods are risks of loss that are rarely covered by typical property insurance, the US Congress stepped in and created the national flood insurance program, which is a separate flood insurance that is necessary to protect against the risk of flood loss. Spong v. Fidelity Nat’l Prop. & Cas. Ins. Co., 787 F.3d 296, 304 (5th Cir.2015).
FEMA is the federal agency implementing the National Flood Insurance Program ("NFIP"), a federal program that enables property owners to join communities to purchase insurance coverage, administered by the government, against flood losses. In order to participate in the NFIP, communities must adopt and implement regulations on the management of flood plans to reduce future flood damage. Through this program, FEMA has created maps, so-called FIRMs, that delimit the boundaries within a community of flood risk areas. The FIRMs are divided into insurance risk zones depending on the probability of a flood within a certain region.
The Federal Treasury finally makes payments on flood insurance claims. ( Gowland v. Aetna 143 F.3d 951, 954 (5 Cir.1998)). The insurance process for flood insurance requires that the insured notifies the insurer of the loss and submits a fully signed and sworn proof of loss stating the nature, cause and value of the loss. Failure to comply with the letter of the law and the flood insurance deprives the insured of the right to compensation to recover from flood damage.
