More people in the F-M area could be potential victims of future floods. Fargo and Moorhead are releasing new FEMA Flood Maps.

Fargo has around 2,000 new homes in the 100 year floodplain. It's also including around 8,000 pieces of undeveloped property. The new maps add 16 Moorhead homes to the floodplain. Flood insurance for those properties could cost between $1,000-$3,000 a year.

Nancy Anderson – American Family Insurance: "It does protect in your basement, it covers your hot water heater, your furnace, your sub pumps, it covers the studs on your wall.”

Flood insurance does not cover personal belongings.
