Week #3 – Emergency Preparedness Month – Check your insurance coverage

Week 3 – Check your Insurance Coverage

  1. Flooding can be an emotionally and financially devastating event.  Just one inch of water can cause $25,000 in damage to your home.
  2. Approximately 80 percent of households impacted by Hurricane Harvey did not have flood insurance.  Also, most homeowners and renters insurance does not cover flood damage.  Avoid surprises.  Learn more about your flood risk and insurance at www.floodsmart.gov.
  3. Take photos of important documents and personal belongings to help you quickly file a claim after a flood.
