Flood insurance discount for Blytheville residents

BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Blytheville homeowners now have a five percent discount on their flood insurance thanks to the city being more vigilant.

According to Judy Andrews, Blytheville floodplain manager; the city earned the discount by being transparent and vocal.

Andrew said there is a list of activities that the city does to earn points to get discounts for citizens.

One activity is telling residents not to dump or throw anything into drainage ditches.

Andrews said the every piece of trash could contribute to flooding.
