FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- Fargo has been told by "FEMA" that flood plain maps will be changed early next year. Another 2,000 homes and businesses will be required to have flood insurance as of Jan. 16.
Those affected are mainly south of Interstate-94. Some properties may be removed from the flood plain once additional protection is in place.
The city is urging affected property owners to act soon. There's a 30-day waiting period and the cost could rise once the flood plain map is updated.
You can purchase the coverage through most insurance companies.
