In our efforts to raise awareness about the importance of purchasing flood insurance the following are some key messages to all of our insureds.
Now is the time to prepare for hurricane season: Buying flood insurance is one of the most important steps you can take to protect the life you’ve built. Don’t delay because flood insurance policies typically take up to 30 days to go into effect.
It can happen again: The 2017 hurricane season was one of the most devastating and costly on record, and forecasters predict that these severe storms will continue this year.
Just one inch of water in an average-sized home can cause more than $25,000 in damage: Remember, most homeowners insurance does not cover flooding.
Flooding can happen anywhere, not just in high-risk areas: More than 25% of flood insurance claims come from outside the high-risk area. We now have private flood options available as well. The time is now to add your flood policy.
