Government Flood Insurance Program Called Into Question - ABC News Investigation, Brian Ross Investigates.

Sept. 20, 2005 — More than 100,000 Gulf Coast homeowners who are expecting help from the federal flood insurance program may be in for a bitter surprise, according to victims of a hurricane that hit the state of Maryland two years ago this week.

"Pennies on the dollar.  And they'll be unable to rebuild their homes and lives just as victims from numerous storms across the country have been subjected to for the last years," says Steve Kanstoroom, founder of FEMAINFO.us, a Web site advocating for flood victims, including those whose homes were damaged when Hurricane Isabel triggered a flood surge in the Chesapeake Bay.

Maryland's Insurance Commissioner found "FEMA adjusters systematically low-balled the losses of thousands of Maryland victims."

FEMA's response - "No comment."
