September 20, 2013 (HYANNIS) _ Sen. Elizabeth Wwarren says she's concerned about new federal flood insurance rules.
Warren says she’s is pressing FEMA leaders about the impact of the new rules on families who have been placed into a flood zone for the first time.
The agency held meetings this summer on Cape Cod to update residents on the changes.
Many towns have seen a dramatic increase in the number of properties now falling into the flood zones.
In dennis – the number has more than doubled.
Warren says she supports a one-year delay of the new flood insurance rates, which she said would allow more time for a smoother transition while the accuracy of new maps is verified.
