Richmond, KY -- In the aftermath of May's flooding, disaster officials are reminding homeowners throughout Kentucky that they may purchase flood insurance coverage through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). "Year in and year out, flooding is the leading cause of property loss from natural disasters in this country," said Mike Butler, federal coordinating officer. "But all too often, homeowners learn after the fact that protection against flood loss is not part of their normal insurance protection package."
