Tonight: MBNA To Discuss Ins & Outs Of Flood Insurance

The Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association will be meeting this evening, October 7, at 8:00 p.m. at Public School 195, 131 Irwin Street in Manhattan Beach.

The meeting will feature Stuart Fries, vice president of Garber, Atlas, and Fries Insurance Company, who will give a lengthy presentation about the ins and outs of flood insurance.

It will cover:

Why do you need flood insurance?
  • Will you be getting a rate increase?
  • Do you need an elevation certification?

Fries added that he hopes to clear up some confusion about the FEMA flood maps in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

“I will have a huge CURRENT flood map of this area, plus some smaller Maps, of what to expect with the new FEMA Flood Maps which are supposed to arrive before end of 2014,” Fries wrote to Sheepshead Bites.

Fries will also take questions from the audience, and the meeting is open to everyone from all communities.
