Deadline extended for Isaac flood victims

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) has announced another extension for property owners in Louisiana who were effected by Hurricane Isaac.  Property owners, whose land and property were flooded, have normally been given 60 days to report damage.  However, due to the massive amounts of damage, The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), controlled by FEMA, will give property owners its third extension.  Property owners will now have until February 21, 2013 to file any claims.

Hurricane Isaac made landfall in Louisiana on August 28, 2012 causing wide spread flooding and heavy rainfall.  The NFIP has paid out $416 million on 13,159 claims in Louisiana due to this storm.

Policyholders with questions about flood insurance or concerns about their claims may contact their local insurance agent, call FEMA program experts at 1-866-331-1679 or 1-866-330-7286, or visit www.floodsmart.gov.
