Virginia Hurricane Season Flood Insurance Twitter Chat

Posted at 2:30 p.m.

Flood Insurance Twitter Chat, 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 30, 2016

Flooding is the most prevalent natural disaster in Virginia.

Just a few inches of water inside an average house can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage, and yet a flood insurance policy can cost just over $100 a year for those living in a low- to moderate-risk area.

The Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) will host its first Twitter chat to discuss flood insurance in Virginia. Emergency management officials will be joined by the Virginia State Corporation Commission and National Flood Insurance Program representatives to answer questions on this topic.

Make plans to join the conversation using the hashtag #GetReadyVA on Thursday, June 30, from 2-3 p.m. (EDT).

To find your official flood map, access a range of other flood hazard products and take advantage of tools for better understanding flood risk, visit the FEMA Flood Map Service Center, the official public source for flood hazard information produced in support of the National Flood Insurance Program.

      The Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) is planning to participate in the chat with their Listo Virginia Twitter account, translating the questions and answers into Spanish. VDEM also will save the conversation thread and if there is a need for another language they can translate it and make it available. What language might you need?
