Oh Please .. This event was not a poor trailer park devastated by a rogue tornado in rural Nebraska. These people were living on very desirable and insured high-priced ocean beach property and many with cradled yachts nearby. The insurance is in addition to the $80,000,000,000 that the Federal government is expected to give to the already allocated FEMA and charity outlays. Using envelope math.. just the $80 Billion is about $240 per US citizen and nearly $2000 per Merrimac valley taxpaying family .. not to mention that all US home insurance premiums will jump next year to allow the insurance companies recoup their loses. One has to question what is this all about?
