Many Montanans are facing an increase in flood insurance prices that they never had to pay before. The reason for this is an all-or-nothing levy policy that FEMA is currently using to calculate the nations flood zones. In an interview with KGVO news, Missoula County Floodplain Administrator, Todd Klietz explains how the new FEMA maps can effect landowners.

Missoula counties levies are all certified, but that is not the case for many areas of the state where businesses and homeowners are now faced with a new expense.

The Land of Magic restaurant in Logan is an example of one business already effected by the new levy calculations. The businesses owner, Beth McCurry is currently protesting the need to buy eleven thousand dollars worth of insurance that she never needed to buy before.
