Flooding Remains a Significant Risk; APCIA Urges All Residents to get Covered

Flooding 02 Homepage 329x185

Torrential downpours in many parts of the country have fueled the risk of flash flooding and as the U.S. enters the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season residents need to stay informed regarding weather events and heed evacuation warnings when they’re issued.

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.

As many communities have experienced, flooding frequently occurs in areas not designated as being high risk. As a result, it is smart to consider purchasing a flood insurance policy.

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.
