High Speed Internet in Rural Areas is Goal of Ohio Senate Bill

 

A new bill in the Ohio Senate aims to bring High Speed internet to rural areas within Ohio.

 

WIFN reports that Ohio Senator Cliff Hite and Joe Schiavoni have put forth a bill that would give $50 million per year in a grant program that would spread access for high speed internet across Ohio. The Senators estimate that this could help to spread internet access to more than 14,000 homes and business in Ohio.

 

A study conducted by the Ohio State University found that more than one million Ohioans live in an area with no access to high speed internet.

AAA Recommends Residents to Consider Getting Flood Insurance

 

While historic rains, like those that came with Hurricane Harvey, are rare, floods remain the number one disaster in the United States and occur in all 50 states.

 

Even those that don’t live in a flood plain should plan ahead and be prepared for flooding.

 

Just one inch of water can cause more than $20,000 in damage, according to FEMA, but floods can bring waves of water many feet high.

 

AAA says the right insurance can help save homeowners thousands of dollars in the event of a flood, but it’s important to understand which type of insurance is needed to cover various types of flood damage. They suggest visiting floodsmart.gov for more information.
