Weidman's Facebook then went silent. However, he was in contract with MMAFighting via text message, and offered an update.

"Everyone is good," Weidman texted. "My family was out, and I stayed back to manage the damage going on. First floor, garage, backyard, deck all pretty much destroyed.

"We lost a lot of stuff but as long as we are healthy that's all that matters. I actually documented a lot through video and pics. We had water up to my chest in some parts of my house."

You have to purchase a seperate flood policy. Because floods are so damaging and often reoccur in the same places, no private insurance company will issue them. So the government created a flood insurance program and the flood insurance that all insurance companies sell is actually backed by the government.Not to get political, but it's a great example of why a federal government is vital and not everything can be trusted to the free market.

  Voting you up for voting him up.  I doubt anyone is trying to cause more stress or problems for anyone effected by the storm, and flying off the handle because someone makes a non-malicious joke is a little much.

He lives in Baldwin on long island. I'm pretty sure his house is on a canal. I highly doubt he has flood insurance bc it's pretty much impossible to get where he lives
