    I would think that insurance would cover it. Same thing would happen with those with D* or E* would need to submit claims. Sucks to be in a flood zone.

    Most people don't have flood insurance, so they may be stuck unless FEMA comes up with some grant or low-interest loan money.

    Then they shouldn't live in a flood zone. The government always bails out these idiots who want to live somewhere their house floods every couple of years. I have no problem with them living their, just don't ask the government for money!

    Actually, per another version of the story that I heard on the radio, leased equipment such as cable boxes are not covered by homeowner's insurance. Owned equipment (such as satellite boxes not on lease) are covered. Per the story I heard, the customer will have to pay out for the boxes lost.

    I just hate that Barry Bonds guy. :lol: Not only that, I live on an island. :D

    You can come up here to SLC and live on Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake. You can keep cozy with the brine flies and spiders...

    Public pressure yielded a quick positive response. Not bad for a cable company.
