  • Don't forget our insurance rates will go up too. For every disaster, whether you were directly effected, made a claim or not, your rates go up to pay for everyone else's disaster relief. Don't get me wrong, I feel horrible for those people & then to get socked w/ a blizzard too... but when insurance companies are still raking in the profits, those of us who never make claims should not have to foot the bill, sorry.

  • How do they pay for the damage otherwise? And how much are they going up? I'm don't click links but most reports I'm seeing show a very small increase (a little over 1%)

  • If they do get around to helping people out financially I guess that will be taken away before you even get it. So help ends up being zero.

  • Homeowners in an exclusive waterfront enclave in Brooklyn thought Hurricane Sandy was as cruel a blow as they could suffer — until the taxman proved them wrong.
    The city is claiming that property values have actually shot up for many homes in Manhattan Beach and it’s going ahead with hefty tax hikes for the houses devastated by the October superstorm, shocked property owners told The Post.
    Homeowners in other neighborhoods hit by Sandy, including Coney Island, the Rockaways and parts of Staten Island, also said they’ve received increases.   “This is totally insensitive and heartless,” said Ira Zalcman, president of the Manhattan Beach Community Group, which has received more than 30 complaints from residents about the hikes.
