I'm hearing that part of the old Town of bay st Louis is not in a flood pain? And theoretically wouldn't require flood insurance? How did this area do with Katrina? High and Dry?

Well the older residential streets a few blocks inland behind downtown Bay St. Louis seemed to survive Katrina better than everything else around it. I have no idea about insurance though.

There are a lot of areas of Houston that were not in a flood plain and they flooded anyway, I wouldn't take a chance on protecting my house.
