Why Do I Need Flood Insurance?


If you’re new to flood insurance, here are a few things you need to know:
  • Flooding happens in all 50 states
  • Just a few inches of water from a flood can cause thousands of dollars in damages
  • About a foot of water can move a car
  • Only 6 inches of water can knock a person off their feet
  • ‘Flash Floods’ often bring walls of water 10-20 feet high

Homeowners insurance does not cover damage from floods. Even if your home is NOT in a special flood hazard area (High Risk Zone), you can still suffer from the effects of flooding. 
Fun Fact: 25% of all flood claims come from low hazard flood zones
.
 Homeowners who want flood protection have two basic choices: Standard or Preferred Risk Policies.
