Watching the Texas tragedy.......
A subdivision of houses 4 to 5 feet deep water in the front lawn.
A very sickening sight. Most don't have flood insurance and if they did it is about bankrupt anyways.

But wait. One house is on fire and no one can do anything but watch it burn.
Did this homeowner just get lucky???? It burned didn't it????? Will their insurance now pay for the loss????

Should federal flood insurance pay to rebuild houses in a flood plane over and over again? USA today had an article that some people have built their homes over and over again many time the value of the home.

I thought this thread was going in a whole other off-topic direction1 Coffee2

In all seriousness, I guess it would depend on the cause of the damage.

Insurance: Lucky for you, Mr. AirgunSavant, the flood water prevented the house from burning down completely. Good news! As soon as you rebuild the entire house (which was destroyed by flood waters) we'll cover the cost of a new roof for you!

Its like when the Coast Guard rescues people from a capsized ship, they dont then buy the owners a new ship.

That analogy is not comparable.

They will say that the house was already destroyed by flooding before the fire. Thus there is no loss.

Before or after it was destroyed by flood waters?

Once the federal government rescues everyone, how is it that the taxpayer should help to rebuild those that did not have flood insurance? If I get flooded, Im pretty sure I dont get free anything if I dont have insurance.

What makes you think the feds will pay to re-build a home that did not have flood insurance. They won't.... the most they will do is offer SBA loans.

Flooding might have caused an electrical problem, which may have lead to the fire.

Probably not covered.

And even if it wasn't related, insurance will probably only cover a portion, since it was already ruined.

The ideal situation would be for the house to catch fire the day before the flooding
