No longer being able to live on waterfront property because flood insurance has increased too vastly in rate:

The flood insurance problem doesn't involve only waterfront property.

A friend of mine lives 5.6 miles from the beach, yet she pays $287 per month for flood insurance. I live the exact same distance from the beach, but my house is (est.) 50 feet higher elevation, so flood insurance isn't required.
