All insurance claims have been denied…

Rhonda and her family have faithfully paid their home insurance premiums for the last decade…due to being on a flood plain, they’ve also been required to pay federally mandated flood insurance.  When submitting a request for relief from the insurance companies however, both the home and flood insurance companies have denied the Bufords’ claims, insisting that the policies will not cover “severe erosion.”  The county has forced them from their homes due to the eminent danger, but with no relief through insurance the Bufords don’t know what to do.


Rhonda receives a letter from the insurance company.


Unsure how to respond, her family has received another claim denial.
