To the editor: I have lived more than 20 miles from the coast since 1978 and have never had a weather-related damage claim on my property insurance, yet my premiums have tripled.
The last claim I had was on property in Wingate (Union County).
We are getting increases, and the western counties are getting reductions. Hugo went there and not here.
Our representatives are trying, but nothing will help until we property owners get involved. We need to write and call to get the news media involved. There are 13 coastal counties involved.
