Did you know that standard home insurance policies do not cover flood damage? A home located in a flood hazard area is more than twice as likely to be damaged by flood than fire. Is your home insured? There is a 30-day waiting period for flood coverage, and policies are only available from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Premiums in moderate-risk areas start at $129 per year. Talk to your insurance agent today for a quote.
Remember to play it safe during flooding. Never walk or drive through a flooded area. A vehicle can be swept away with only 18 to 24 inches of water, and an adult swept away in only 6 inches of water.
