Flood Awareness Week

March 14-20 is Virginia Flood Awareness Week. Here are three things you should know about flooding:

  • Just one inch of water in an average-sized home can cause more than $25,000 in damage: In 2017, the average flood claim payment was more than $90,000.
  • Flooding can happen anywhere, not just in high-risk areas: More than 25% of flood insurance claims come from outside the high-risk flood area.
  • Most homeowners insurance do not cover flood damage: With a flood policy from the NFIP, you’re covered—up to $250,000 for your home and $100,000 for belongings.
