Prepare Yourself for Natural Disasters with Flood Insurance

House Flood Insurance

Which natural disasters cause floods?

Despite technological advances in the last decades, natural disasters like hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, and earthquakes continue to leave thousands of people without homes each year. Natural disasters cannot be controlled, but what you do have control over is having flood insurance coverage.

Are you in a flood zone?

Why is it important to have flood insurance? In the United States, there are many states in danger of suffering the effects of natural disasters such as hurricanes and tropical storms. From Florida to Texas, many people lose their homes because of flooding. Your house may be located in the danger zone for flooding. This Flood Risk Map will tell you if your home is in a high danger zone.

Fortunately, catastrophes like Katrina do not happen every day. However, it is still essential to prepare if you live in a southern state like Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Georgia or South Carolina. You may think that your homeowner’s policy covers damages caused by natural disaster, but that is not the case. To be protected against flood damage, regardless of the reason for the flood, you need a more specific coverage.
