DENVER (KMGH/CNN) - Homeowners along U.S. coasts and river valleys are in for some serious sticker shock on their flood insurance.
They're discovering changes to the National Flood Insurance Program will cause their premiums to skyrocket at alarming rates.
Earlier this month, part of a new law went into effect that phases out flood insurance subsidies on hundreds of thousands of older homes.
The government has also been revising its flood zone maps and reassessing the level of flood risk for various areas.
As a result, millions of homeowners either have to buy flood insurance for the first time, or pay a significantly higher premium on their existing policies.
The changes are meant to boost the finances of the federal flood insurance program.
The program has been struggling under the weight of about $30 billion in debt after being hit hard by storms like Sandy and Hurricane Katrina.
