The Associated Press reports that there are 3,319 Maine flood insurance policyholders facing premium cost increases as part of changes to the National Flood Insurance Program.
Other statistics of interest:
 Percent of flood insurance policyholders facing an increase: 36 percent
 Policies facing annual increases up to 18 percent: 1,679
 Policies facing mandatory annual 25 percent increases: 1,640
 Businesses affected: 540
 Annual premiums paid in 2013: $9.5 million
 Paid flood claims all-time: $41.7 million
The impact is important for those affected, but as Sue Baker, state coordinator for the national flood insurance program, points out, Maine claims are small compared with those in the Gulf Coast states.
