Rhode Island homeowners have made their voices heard on flood insurance. more
The odd hours and unexpected demands of a real estate agent mean the job is not for everyone, even those with a passion for property. For Susan Arnold, having to respond to a client call the night before her wedding convinced her to look for more predictable work and she found it in corporate purchasing with Pratt & Whitney. But after night school produced a law degree, Arnold was drawn back to real estate, first as legal counsel and eventually CEO of the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, where her combination of corporate, legal and real estate experience was a good fit. Now in her second decade with the Realtors group, Arnold is trying to help her members negotiate challenges like the government shutdown and changes to the National Flood Insurance Program. She says flood insurance in particular - with new maps and the phasing out of subsidized rates for old homes - has caused significant anxiety in the housing market. more

Seventy-five years ago last month, The Great New England Hurricane, or the Hurricane of ’38, altered the southern New England coastline and perception of the region’s vulnerability to severe weather. Since then, meteorologists have made huge advances in hurricane forecasting unimagined in the 1930s, while communities have built storm barriers and coastal fortifications. But we’re still vulnerable. Karen Clark, whose consulting firm advises businesses and insurance companies on catastrophe risk and modeling, has developed new tools for estimating the losses that will occur from different storm tracks. She recently released a report on what we could expect if a storm like the Hurricane of 1938 landed in New England today and discusses that and other unpleasant scenarios. more
