New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the state would use part of its federal Superstorm Sandy aid to “fully compensate” those who had flood insurance claims denied due to hard-to-understand rules barring payments for damage caused by earth movement during a flood. The governor has not released the details of the program yet, but said that hundreds of homeowners in the state have cracked foundations and buckled floors and were denied insurance claims under the earth movement rule.
