FEMA: If storm hits, expect oil to flood homes (VIDEO)

Hurricanes and Oil: Will Your Insurance Policies Protect You From Oil Damage?, WJGH Channel 7 NBC Destin, July 9, 2010:

In June, FEMA announced “the mixing of oil and other pollutants with flood waters is not unusual during a storm” and damage caused by pollutant-filled flood water is covered under the National Flood Insurance Program.

This means FEMA will cover damages due to oil driven ashore by a hurricane, but you must have flood insurance to qualify.
