FEMA Prevents Homeowners From Rebuilding Burned-Down Homes

Because flood zones


Imagine a fire destroying much of your home, and not being able to come back and rebuild?

It's a problem homeowners in Natomas are facing and want fixed.

Kim Lamb is helping Patti cope and get back on her feet after an early-morning fire scorched her two-story home.

Not only are Patti and her children looking for somewhere to say tonight, but they may never be able to rebuild their home.

In 2008, the Federal Emergency Management Agency increased the danger of flood zones in places such as Natomas. This has halted allconstruction due to flood concerns.
