FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Flood Insurance Holder Tackles Losses   [open pdf - 40KB]

Alternate Title: Flood Insurance Tackles Losses Caguas, Puerto Rico

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "In the aftermath of Tropical Storm Jeanne (2004), four houses located in the Villas del Rey subdivision of the City of Caguas were designated by the local government as uninhabitable. Fortunately for the owner of the collapsed home, the property was covered by flood insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Not only will the homeowner receive full payment of the flood insurance claim, but for the first time in Puerto Rico, the Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) benefit is going to be used." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
