30-DAY WAITING PERIOD EXCEPTION TO FLOOD INSURANCE POLICIES MAY BE AVAILABLE FOLLOWING WILDFIRES ON FEDERAL LANDS https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2017/09/12/30-day-waiting-period-exception-flood-insurance-policies-may-be-available 09/12/2017 05:47 PM EDT
DENVER - Residents in western states impacted by wildfires may be eligible for an exception to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) 30-day waiting period usually required for flood insurance coverage. Though flood insurance coverage is often not an immediate concern of those owning property near areas experiencing wildland fires, the removal of vegetation post-fire can result in ground unable to absorb water, resulting in increased flood risks.
