A flood starts with a single drop of water-but it doesn’t stop there. All it takes is one persistent thunderstorm and suddenly, water is rushing under your door. Without flood insurance you would have to pay for ruined walls, furniture, floors, rugs, baseboards, electronics and more. Buying affordable flood insurance lessens your financial burden, and makes it faster and easier to repair the damage and make your house a home again.
More than 80 insurance companies offer preferred risk flood insurance from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and whichever company you use, it’s sold at the same low price. For more information, visit www.floodsmart.gov or call 800-427-2419.
