Following Hurricane Sandy, Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro's Regional Vice President Steve Vanuga was interviewed by the Detroit News about flood claims. Vanuga addressed the intricacies of what is and isn't covered by the National Flood Insurance Program. For those seeking coverage above and beyond what is offered through the NFIP policies, such as contents in a finished basement, there is an option available to them:
"It's called 'excess flood insurance,' and you can get coverage of up to $50 million, notes Steven Vanuga, regional vice president for Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro, in Buffalo, N.Y. Typically, excess insurance is purchased in addition to regular flood insurance."
Excerpts from Vanuga's interview can be found in The Detroit News article "A Jeep-load of insurance malarkey" and the follow-up piece "Wrong flood info left me going Rove."
