Insurance companies "flooded" with inquiries

With Lake Michigan reportedly expecting to set record-high levels over the next six months, area shoreside property owners are inquiring about flood insurance more than ever.  Mike Walston from Robertson Ryan & Associates in Kewaunee says he has been fielding a lot of calls from residential and commercial owners with land near the harbor and lake.  He says there are two types of flood insurance that policyholders can purchase.



Walston says there is a 30-day waiting period when going through the national flood insurance program.  Private insurance companies, on the other hand, can have policies activated right away but are not guaranteed.
