The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the deadline for filing an insurance claim related to this year’s Missouri River flooding. People affected by the floods will now have until at least October 29th to file a claim with the federal flood insurance program. The deadline originally was tomorrow (THUR). Amanda Bicknell, with FEMA, says even though there’s an extension, property owners shouldn’t waste time.
Members of the flood program have to file a claim within 150 days after their property was damaged. The program will pay up to 350 thousand dollars for a damaged home and one million dollars for a damaged business.
