Ever changing weather patterns, along with over-development, and the leveling of forests have reduced the land’s natural ability to absorb water. The results are costly, a flood risk for many… even those who don’t live near the water!
During a 30 mortgage, your home has a 26% chance of experiencing a flood compared to only a 4% chance of a fire. Between 20 and 25 percent of flood insurance claims come from a medium or low flood-risk area, and the sad truth is that the damage left behind is not insured.
Fortunately, many communities in the United States participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Chances are excellent that flood insurance will be available to protect your home or business, and their contents.
