Links to Hurricane Florence Resources

Hurricane Florence has the potential to impact hundreds of thousands of homes and commercial buildings. According to estimates, some 750,000 U.S. homes are at risk of coastal storm surge, and up to $170 billion in property damage is possible across the Carolinas and Virginia. NAR has compiled links that can be helpful to you and your customers preparing for and responding to the aftermath of the storm. NAR is also calling on Congress to pass long-term reauthorization and reform of federal flood insurance, which is critical for healthy property markets throughout the country.
