FILE - This Oct. 30, 2012 aerial photo provided by the U.S. Coast Guard shows storm damage from Superstorm Sandy in a portion of New Haven, Conn. In 2012, Congress passed a law requiring approximately 1.1 million policyholders nationwide to start paying rates based on the true risk of flooding. Nearly 4,200 policyholders in Connecticut face increases of up to 25 percent each year.
