Carla Price, a loan officer at River Bank in Corning, said it is a possibility that flood determination companies will reconsider flood zones after last week’s floods.
“We’ve had three major floods since 2009, and this is the worst,” Price said. “This area, we are surrounded by water.”
“We’ve seen floods but not this bad,” Billy Cato, a Success resident, said.
“It would help them in the future for flooding to obtain flood insurance,” Price said.
Cato, in his 70’s, does not live in a flood zone and his home was damaged in the floods; however, he hopes he is not required to buy flood insurance.
“It doesn’t seem fair,” he said. “It's too expensive for some people to have. When your old and you’re on social security, you'll have to watch what bills are going to be added to your monthly amount of money.”
