Why Buy Flood Insurance for Hurricane Season?

It's imperative we keep flooding and water damage top of mind as we enter into hurricane season. As we’ve recently experienced, preparation and a response plan for risks, including flooding, helps to weather the storm.


Protect the place where memories are made… your home.

Flood insurance helps to protect the place where all those special moments are spent. In a flood event, self-insuring means you take the risk to cover all your losses. The average flood insurance claim payment over the last five years was nearly $70,000.1

Get peace of mind … alleviate the stress of “What if?”

You never know what will happen, or when it will happen. Flooding is the number one most common natural disaster in the United States.

Hurricane season impacts homes along the coasts and inland. Knowing you have flood coverage can help you feel at ease about what nature unleashes.

Be proactive…prepare before the storm hits.

Don’t wait until it’s too late — when a hurricane is about to occur or you’ve already experienced flooding.

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) typically has a 30-day waiting period before a policy goes into effect.
