Western South Dakota has a wicked thunder storm Friday evening (Aug. 17th) but I had not idea until I read the local paper this morning that some areas had actually experienced flash floods.
I just sold a manufactured home on a permanent foundation a couple months ago on Ferguson Street in Hermosa and that street was flooded and all the residents were taken to a temporary shelter. I cannot reach my clients by phone or email so I am very anxious to hear from them.
The previous owners of this house were not required to have flood insurance so at the time of this purchase, the insurance company was seeing if there was any way that my clients could also get away from paying the additional $400/year required for flood insurance based on the revised FEMA flood maps. At the time the extra cost seemed quite high and my clients were pretty upset. Thank goodness they were required to get the flood insurance because without it I'm sure they'd be a lot more upset now. That area hasn't flooded in decades so what are the odds that this would happen so quickly after my clients purchase the property. UGH!
Please keep all these families in your prayers!
