Yep that is one of the people we contacted. Their quote was around $1450/yr. We are also looking into Farmer's as well. Still waiting to hear back from them on the quote.

The house is located near the Ocean View golf course. The neighborhoods south of Granby St. are zoned X which is the least likely to flood. This means the area is of minimal flood hazard, usually depicted on FIRMs as between the 100 and 500-year flood level. The only elevation map I found shows the area to be between 10-13' in elevation. Isabel storm surge was around 8.5' I believe for comparison.

It also lists the area to not be affected by storm surge until a Cat. 3 hurricane. And I would never be there if a cat 3 rolled through lol.

I was thinking VAB not Norfolk. My house is 31 feet above sea level and we're in the cat 4 evacuation zone. I'd stay for a 3. They are never as strong as the weather man says.
