According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States, affecting every state. Flooding can be caused by storms, dams or levees breaking, new development changing how water flows above and below ground, heavy rain, snowmelt and much more. It can occur anywhere, often with little or no warning, at any time of the year.
Main Street America offers flood insurance backed by the federal government’s National Flood Insurance Program, which aims to reduce the impact of flooding by providing affordable insurance to property owners. A flood insurance policy can provide the specialized coverage you need to help protect your home, apartment or condo from rising waters.
Importance of Flood Coverage
Flood coverage is available to protect your home and contents. The damage from a flood is not covered under a standard homeowner's or renter’s policy.
Did you know?
Floods are the most common and most destructive natural disaster in the United States.
More than 20 percent of flood claims come from properties outside high-risk flood zones.
Flood insurance can pay regardless of whether or not there is a Presidential Disaster Declaration.
One inch of water in a home can cause more than $25,000 in damage.
Ninety percent of all natural disasters involve flooding.
Everyone lives in a flood zone – it’s a matter of whether it’s designated as a low, moderate or high-risk area.
No property is completely safe from potential flooding. Flood insurance can be the difference between recovering and being financially devastated – why risk it? When a flood policy is purchased, there is a 30-day wait before coverage takes effect. Your independent agent can help you obtain this very important coverage.
