Prepare for Winter Flooding; APCIA Urges Residents to get Covered

Flooding 02 Homepage 329x185

Much of the nation has already experienced a blast of winter-like weather and that wake-up call should prompt us to make sure we are prepared not only for snow and ice, but also the potential for winter flooding.

Winter flooding can occur due to ice jams, winter storms producing coastal flooding, heavy rains, and snow melt after a major storm. Regardless of the cause, it is important to stay informed about weather events and take precautions.

APCIA also recommends creating an emergency supply kit, developing a home inventory of your possession and talking with your insurer or agent about your coverage options – including flood insurance.

It is important for homeowners to know that flood insurance is not typically covered by a homeowners insurance policy. However, it is available as a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.

APCIA's Flooding Headquarters offers vital information for those impacted by floods. As we provide tips on what to do before, during and after a flood, follow us on Twitter @TEAMAPCIA for more important flood tips and new developments with the NFIP.
