A few days ago, I was telling you about what is covered when a hurricane hits, and what isn't. Almost a week after the storm hit the East Coast, clean up efforts are still underway, and the news channels are discussing the fallout of the storm.

On Fox News, Geraldo had a talk with the CEO of the Independent Insurance Agents of America, Bob Rusbuldt about the insurance side of the damage. What you'll notice is that Bob mentions a lot of the same things we do - buy flood insurance, buy flood insurance, buy flood insurance. Only a small portion of the country has that coverage, and they have several challenges ahead of them in rebuilding their homes.
