Flood

 

Flood Safety Awareness Week continues today. Thursday’s topic is Flood Insurance.

 

Many discover they do not have proper flood insurance when it is too late. Flooding causes more damage in the United States than any other weather related event. Flood related losses are NOT covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy. Fortunately, this is easily fixed.

 

You can purchase flood insurance from private insurance companies and agents to ensure you are covered. There are over 100 insurance companies that sell flood insurance coverage through some 60,000 independent agents. Renters should check with their landlords about his/her coverage. Though the building may be insured, your individual possessions might not be covered. Contact your local insurance agent to decide on coverage that best fits your needs!
