In the past five years, all 50 states have experienced floods. Despite this, many Americans are not adequately informed about the benefits of having flood insurance & the heavy financial ruin that can come with floods: just an inch of water can cause up to $25,000 in damages in most homes or apartments.
Flood risks come in many forms, knowing the most common causes of flood will help you better understand your exposure. Understanding your flood risk is the first step in protecting what is most likely your most valuable asset, your home or business. Remember, low risk does not mean no risk.
