An investigative report that was critical of the Federal Emergency Management Agencys remapping of numerous oceanfront properties has reportedly caught the attention of the FBI. That report from NBC News in February, said FEMA knowingly remapped and downgraded more than 500 properties despite clear evidence those properties were in high risk flood zones. As a result, the zoning made it far less expensive for those property owners to pay for flood insurance, despite known risks. Citing sources, NBC News now says the FBIs spent the past 10 days interviewing FEMA employees as well as contractors about the program to see if theres been malfeasance.
