According to the National Flood Insurance Program, anyone living in any of the 50 states is at risk for flooding! This is because floods can happen in any location, for a variety of reasons, including winter storms and melting snow after a year of heavy snowfall. The NFIP estimates that over the last 10 years, flood losses across the country total some 2.9 billion dollars. They also caution homeowners to be aware that many times, the homeowner's insurance policy that you take out covers other types of damage but does not cover flood damage.
Even if you do have insurance that considers a flood to be a covered loss that does not mean that your claim will automatically be accepted. An important factor in having your insurance cover any losses is how you handle the incident. If your insurance company finds that you did not take steps to minimize damages as soon as you became aware of the flood, they may reject your claim.
