Even Minor Flooding Can Cause Tremendous Damage. Guard Against Flood Damage with the Right Insurance
Flooding is a natural disaster that can happen to any homeowner regardless of where your home lies. If it rains where you live, it can flood. Flooding risk isn’t based solely on history. Many factors play a role in flood risk including:
- River flows
- Tidal surge
- Flood-prevention measures like levees
Flooding occurs mostly in high-risk flood zones, but can happen in all risk zones. Homeowners living in high-risk zones must buy flood insurance, but those living in other zones aren’t required to. Living without flood insurance is like lighting a firecracker and throwing it—you might get burned, you might not. Is that really a chance you’re willing to take?
Any flooding, even minor, will cause damage to your home. Damage can range from minor water marks on walls and soggy carpet to complete destruction of your home. Minor floods can leave hidden foundation damage that may go unnoticed for years to come. Imagine the damage to your home from just six inches of water and the cost it would be to fix it.
If you’ve lived in Texas for a while, you probably remember Hurricane Allison. This powerful, tropical monster dumped over 40 inches of rain in the Lone Star State and left over 30,000 homeless in Houston alone. The rains flooded over 70,000 homes and destroyed nearly 2,800 homes in Houston.
