FORT MYERS, Fla. 

The cost of owning a home in some parts of SW Florida may be taking a huge jump because of recent
legislation designed to make the National Flood Insurance Program solvent.

The legislation is called the Biggert-Waters Reform act of 2012 and although it is national legislation,
homes in Florida will feel the major impact
 And that means that certain homeowners may see the cost of their flood insurance go up as high as
500%.
