Flood Insurance

 

A flood can be emotionally and financially devastating, but only 20% of Americans at risk for floods are covered by flood insurance nationwide. Traditional homeowners insurance doesn't cover flood damage and if you live in a high-risk area, your mortgage lender will require that you have flood insurance. Even if you don't live in a high-risk area, if it can rain on your property then it can flood on your property. We'll help you find the right option for your home.

Three things you may not know about flood insurance

Floods are the number 1 natural disaster in the United States. As weather and land development changes, high-risk areas can change too. Don't wait until bad weather is in the forecast to find out more, as there is typically a 30-day waiting period before a new policy is effective.

Flood insurance is not part of a typical homeowners policy, though it may be included in some renters policies.

In the past 5 years, floods have occurred in all 50 states, including moderate- to low-risk areas where flood insurance isn't required.

Floods occur more often than tornados and hurricanes and in the past 10 years, flood insurance claims averaged more than $2.9 billion a year.

What could cause a flood

Snow and Ice

Excessive snow melting can turn into standing water when the ground can't absorb it fast enough. Which can then pour into your basement.

Dry Weather

Much like still frozen ground, dry ground following a drought can't absorb rain fast enough, which could cause a flash flood in even low-risk areas.

New Development

Newly cleared land for development has no plants and roots to hold the soil in place during rain. Plus, developments reduce the amount of land available to absorb water, which could lead it to your neighborhood.

Coastal Areas

Tropical storms and hurricanes are common causes of floods, even several miles inland.
