After Hurricane Ian, Florida real estate took a huge hit. With multiple communities literally underwater and the entirety of Southwest Florida facing pricey home repairs, Florida went from being the Sunshine State to the “do we have enough insurance?” state overnight. And with more and more natural disasters taking shape across the US, how can homeowners, landlords, and renters prepare for what mother nature is throwing at us?Thanks to both heavy state and federal funding, Florida is well on its way to a successful recovery, but how did this happen? To learn more about the ins and outs of disaster recovery, we brought on Jeremy Edwards, Press Secretary at FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), to share what the federal government is doing to aid in building back communities. Jeremy touches on storm tracking, pre-disaster preparedness, flood insurance coverage, and temporary housing programs landlords can use to help affected areas.We also take a detour to talk about the rising insurance costs in disaster-prone areas like the Gulf Coast and the flood mitigation assistance grants that FEMA has set up for local governments to lower their chances of a devastating event. Jeremy also talks about what private homeowners can do if they don't have enough insurance coverage, and how they can build back better so their own homes are protected when disaster strikes.Read More About Substantial Damage Determinations Here.

The Florida Insurance Roundup from Lisa Miller & Associates

Play Episode Listen Later Dec 9, 2022 48:13


The Florida Legislature is meeting in special session the week of December 12 to address two issues vital to Florida's economy: disaster relief for Hurricane Ian victims and further insurance consumer protections for homeowners across the state.  Property insurance and reinsurance rates have grown by 100% or more in the past three years, yet insurance companies' losses continue, with six carriers becoming insolvent this year, and 13 others withdrawing coverage, driven in part by a nearly 400% increase in claims litigation since 2013. Former Florida Deputy Insurance Commissioner Lisa Miller talks with a former legislator and the head of an insurance brokerage for their perspective on the problem and what the legislature should do to help fix the Florida insurance market crisis.Show NotesHost Miller was joined by former state representative Andrew Learned, a Democrat from the Tampa Bay area.  During his term, he took a keen interest in the consumer protection side of the property insurance reforms passed by the legislature in 2021 and 2022.  Also joining her was Deb Franklin, Co-CEO of PEAK6 InsurTech, part of the PEAK6 family of companies.  InsurTech provides the technology behind online insurance shopping and offers property and casualty insurance through its Team Focus Insurance Group and WeInsure.  The conversation was part of a webinar hosted by the Florida Housing Coalition on December 2, 2022.  (For full Show Notes, visit https://lisamillerassociates.com/episode-41-special-session-preview/) Host Miller set the table for the conversation, identifying four key focus areas of insurance industry discussion going into the Florida Legislature's December 12 special session:Excessive Litigation – There are renewed calls to eliminate the one-way attorney fees statute altogether, contingency fee multipliers, Assignment of Benefits (AOB) contracts between homeowners and contractors, and reform Bad Faith law under the civil remedy statute. Roof Coverage – The ongoing debate is how carriers can insure roofs, without the coverage being used as a warranty by unscrupulous contractors seeking work or homeowners who fail to perform proper maintenance – and then suing when the claim isn't fully covered.Citizens Property Insurance Corporation Depopulation – The discussion is on how best to return Citizens to being what the 2002 Legislature created, as the “insurer of last resort.”  Those analyzing current numbers say that one of every two policies written by the private market end up at Citizens at renewal because they can't compete on price with Citizens' legislatively-capped rates.Reinsurance Availability – Florida's private insurance market is having difficulty finding adequate capital to purchase reinsurance (insurance for insurance companies) and to write new business.  Reinsurance costs have risen by 30%-70% at the same time that major reinsurance companies are limiting their capacity in the Florida market.  The Legislature is expected to consider providing assistance to improve the availability of reinsurance. “Consumers don't get it.  They don't understand why their rates are climbing or why they're being non-renewed or cancelled,” said Franklin, whose agents are providing extra education and counseling for customers, while finding coverage alternatives.   Former representative Learned, who owns a local student tutoring company, said he heard from many constituents with the same questions and confusion.  “This kind of skirts around the fact that what we've essentially done is socialize our insurance market, and put all of the risk of all these policies in Citizens Property Insurance, which is essentially the taxpayers and anybody who owns a car,” he said.Franklin pointed out that Citizens is now the largest insurance company in the state, with almost 1.2 million policyholders.  She said Florida needs to consider what Louisiana recently did, by allowing Citizens to eliminate its caps and raise rates to actuarially-sound levels.  Both Franklin and Learned said litigation reform is critical.   The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation found that Florida has 7% of homeowners insurance claims in the U.S., yet 76% of homeowners insurance claims lawsuits.  “It's not just that, it's that in an average payout from a lawsuit, the homeowner only got about 9%.  So upwards of 90% is going to lawyers and the insurance companies' lawyers,” said Learned.  “And it's destroying the marketplace for insurance,” added Franklin.  “Private companies are running out of the state as fast as they can because they can't afford to operate here.”Door-to-door and other solicitation by roofers and other contractors, especially post-hurricane, feed the litigation frenzy, with a cottage industry of attorneys who specialize in such litigation.  “To be honest, I think insurance companies do a terrible job.  The problem is they do a terrible job because they are constantly having to beat back fraud claims,” said Learned, who advocates that part of the solution is educating homeowners that “There‘s no such thing as a free roof,” despite the obvious attraction, he said.Host Miller and her guests also discussed the lack of reinsurance availability in Florida, which relies heavily on reinsurance to help pay catastrophic claims from the state's frequent hurricanes and flooding events.  “Because the insurance companies are not capitalized right now the way they should be, a lot of them aren't going to be able to buy reinsurance coverage,” said Franklin, noting that reinsurance prices are going up another 35% to 50%.  “They'll be here for the right price,” she said, in answer to Host Miller's question on whether the reinsurance market is going to be here for Florida's insurance companies in 2023, following Hurricanes Ian and Nicole.Miller and guests also discussed the predominance of flood claims versus wind claims from Hurricane Ian.  Many residents were left without coverage, as standard homeowners policies don't cover storm flooding and they didn't know about or choose to purchase flood insurance.  “The flood losses are the worst,” said Franklin, who spent many days at the insurance villages in Southwest Florida after Ian.  “You lose everything.  Everything's gone.  These people's belongings including their children's clothes and toys are out in front of their home.  It's the worst case scenario for consumers,” she said.  “The time to prepare for these things is years in advance when we make sure that we design a system that works,” added Learned.You

When it comes to gauging how risky it is to live where major hurricanes sometimes make landfall, the most important thing to know is what's called the ‘return period.' That is the estimated average time between such storms. But, because historic records only go back so far scientists use other ways to determine how frequent major storms have occurred in the past. One such technique is called paleoclimatology — or more specifically in the case of massive storms like Hurricane Ian, paleotempestology.We meet one of these scientists who is doing this kind of research work right here in Southwest Florida. Dr. Jo Muller is a paleoclimatologist and a Professor in the Department of Marine & Earth Sciences at Florida Gulf Coast University. She studies past tropical cyclone activity by collecting core samples from lagoons and bays behind Southwest Florida's barrier islands.

From Queens, New York over to West Africa down to Southwest Florida and up to Europe, we're jumping from soil to sky in our exploration of how solar energy could power our world. Contributing WCI reporter Blake Odom investigates how you can set up solar power for your home. He looks into the installation costs, the time needed, and the potential savings. Energicity is hooking up West African countries like Sierra Leone and Liberia with solar power minigrids. Babcock Ranch is one of the few places in Florida that did not lose power when Hurricane Ian hit in September. And that's because it runs on solar power. It's a living laboratory for how we could power our towns with solar energy. Dr. Michael Harbottle is developing a way for soil to store solar energy. Bacteria in the soil will help this process by performing electrosynthesis. Wild! Especially considering how current solar batteries require lithium, which is a finite resource. The Solaris initiative is working on creating a space-based solar power to decrease energy decarbonization on Earth. Over the next decades, it could build a 2 km-long satellite over Europe that harnesses solar power directly from the sun and beams it back down to Earth!

Michael Grunwald is an energy and climate journalist who lives in south Florida. He loves Florida. But he also loves to poke fun at Florida's poor planning. In 2017, he wrote a piece for POLITICO about Cape Coral -- the boomtown built on swampland that is uniquely vulnerable to hurricanes. Cape Coral is a city of 200,000 people in Southwest Florida. It's basically a wetland, nestled next to Fort Myers – one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Construction of Cape Coral started in the late 1950s. It was the vision of two brothers who got wealthy peddling baldness tonic from wool grease. They knew how to sell anything, including a city built on water. And then, in late September, Hurricane Ian rolled in. The near-category 5 hurricane knocked out the city's water supply, electricity, and left most houses underwater. Mike wrote an update to that piece, reminding readers about the “fantasy” propping up Southwest Florida. This week, We talk with Mike Grunwald about Florida's unwillingness to plan for climate change – and what a nearby solar-powered city that weathered Hurricane Ian tells us about what's possible.

    Welcome! and Thank you for listening.    The recovery from Ian continues in Southwest Florida, and daily life is slowing returning to normal.  How do you plan your daily meals?  Do you think in terms of macronutrients such as fat, carbohydrate and protein? Do you focus on micronutrients? Or do you focus on avoiding unhealthy foods and accept the rest will fall into place?  With the hurricane recovery, I hear people say they don't have time to eat in one sentence and then talk of snack foods in the next sentence.  What drives your nutrition decisions? I would offer the best nutrition plan is the one that provides the longest health span for an individual.  But the health needs of a child versus an athlete versus an adult with a chronic illness might look differently.  The same is true for what might be good to build muscle in a lean individual might not be so good in a patient with cancer.  That said feeding oneself does not have to be that difficult.  Simple is best. Whole fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.  Only plants fix nitrogen that are vital to make proteins.  Our gut microbiome is influenced heavily by what we choose to eat.  It is also at the command center or our immune system.  Fiber is needed to select a gut microbiome that is the healthiest.  We all agree that excessive energy intake or excessive calories are at the root of most diseases secondary to metabolic waste accumulation. Movement and lifting heavy things are the key to muscle and bone building.  Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains contain all the macronutrients.  Only the percentages change.  Our bodies are very good at recycling and manufacturing what it needs without specific percentages at each meal.  There is no natural food that is only one macronutrient and there is no one metabolic process that stands alone in the body without affecting another.  Eat the rainbow and focus on minimally processed whole foods.  You body will thank you.     If you have questions email me at jami@doctordulaney.com Website:doctordulaney.com https://www.amazon.com/Plant-based-Wellness-Cookbook-Generations-Cooking/dp/1733967702/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia-wc-nc-drs1_0?cv_ct_cx=doctor+and+diva&dchild=1&keywords=doctor+and+diva&pd_rd_i=1733967702&pd_rd_r=b4b3e11f-e7c1-4a71-a571-54903174e969&pd_rd_w=jpaTr&pd_rd_wg=GNibG&pf_rd_p=8f655ecb-bc8c-4750-9088-950aa74d52dd&pf_rd_r=JMDW81JEWW3K2VMA0JND&psc=1&qid=1608320722&sr=1-1-88388c6d-14b8-4f70-90f6-05ac39e80cc0

A week before that, suspected ISIS militants bombed a Christian-owned business in northeast Nigeria, injuring three Christians. Dalyop Solomon Mwantiri, director of the Emancipation Centre for Crisis Victims in Nigeria, told Morning Star News, “This is an all-encompassing strategy of wiping the entire Christian population from our ancestral land and the face of the Earth. So far, more than 600 farmlands in Christian communities . . . with crops worth over [$460,000] have been destroyed by the herdsmen in the past five months.” German population grew by 843,000 people, mostly Ukrainian refugees The German Federal Statistical Office reports its population grew by a record 843,000 people this year. Most of the influx came from 750,000 Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war between Russia and Ukraine. Women make up most of the refugees. Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Hurricane Ian killed 102 Floridians And finally, Hurricane Ian is now the deadliest storm to hit Florida since 1935. As of Tuesday, at least 102 people have been reported killed since Ian struck the state last week. Hundreds of thousands of people remain without power, roads are inundated, and the hardest-hit areas resemble a warzone. Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis explained what he's doing to get power back on for everyone. DeSANTIS: “Under my direction and working with the legislature, Florida, we created a disaster relief fund of $500 million that's in the state budget. So, we're planning for things like this. You know, you pray that they don't happen, but you've got to be ready in case they do. So, that $500 million it was what we used to do the ramp up to pre-stage. "It's also where we're taking money from to defray the costs of these additional linemen coming in to get the power back on. You know, in Hurricane Michael, there was like a contest about who's going to get the reimbursement or who's going to be on the hook. And so, some of the efforts were slower. "What I'm saying is, ‘Look, I'll be on the hook for it. That's fine. We'll use our disaster fund to do these reimbursements. We'll work it out somehow.' But we want to surge people here. So, you have 1,000 linemen statewide from the co op Association throughout Florida that came. And then Duke Electric, they're doing 2,500 to 3,500 people surging down after they've completed their efforts in other parts of the state. "So, this is a massive number of people and that's what I want to see. We want to be able to get the power back on.” Fox News reports churches across Southwest Florida are providing a steadying force after the devastation.  CityServe, a Christ-centered non-profit that offers the Gospel, is resourcing churches with emergency food, water, and supplies to help families affected by the storm.
