Hurricane Matthew home damage expected to be in the billions

Is living down by the beach really worth the risk?
  • Hurricane Matthew is a category 4 hurricane descending upon Florida and creeping up the east coast.
  • An estimated $54 billion in home damages on the Atlantic Coast is predicted by CoreLogic.
  • FEMA flood zones and surge zones are two different categories of homes, but only FEMA flood zones require a policy with the National Flood Insurance Program.

Some homeowners are bracing for the worst as Hurricane Matthew now claws and crawls its way up the east coast of Florida.
