Flood Insurance — Why It’s Important

Posted at 2 p.m.

National Flood Insurance ProgramDid you know the Atlantic hurricane and typhoon season lasts through November?

As standard homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover flooding, it’s important to have insurance for flood damage.

If you live in an area prone to flooding, be sure to take advantage of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Visit www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart for more details, including your flood risk based on address, estimate premiums and more. Also, you can find information and resources covering the different types of property insurance at www.usa.gov/property-insurance.
