Disaster Insurance

The U.S. Virgin Islands is located in a highly active earthquake, hurricane and tsunami zone, where there is extreme risk. The U.S. Government offers flood insurance at a much reduced rate. Currently, Windstorm and Earthquake insurance carry excessive premiums.

I will make every effort to work with my colleagues in Congress to create a Windstorm and Earthquake Federal Program, similar to the federal flood insurance program that will be available in the U.S.Virgin Islands.
