Anywhere It Rains, It Can Flood - Flood Safety Awareness Week

Last year there were more than 5600 floods in the US with property damage in excess of $5.6 billion.  In the last 5 years, there were over 26,000 floods exceeding $198 billion in damage affecting EVERY STATE IN THE US.  This week is National Flood Safety Awareness Week (March 15-19).  FEMA has developed an informative website to help consumers understand the risk, protect family and homes, and recovery if needed.

The cost of flood damage is severe - 2 inches of flood water will cost $7800 for repairs; 12 inches will cost your almost $19,000;  and 18 inches will set you back over $26,000.  

If your home is in an area that does not typically flood, the insurance rates are less than $1/day - only $257 for $100,000 in coverage and only $348 for $250,000 in coverage.  For less than the cost of buying pizza each month, you can have the peace of mind of protection from a flood loss.
