I recommend to my customers to purchase
Floridians know a thing or two about water damage. If anything, the last few years have really brought home the fact that water is wonderful, but can also be devastating to your home. Storms, hurricanes, and the ocean can all put water in the places we need to keep dry.
You probably aren’t surprised to know that flooding is the #1 natural disaster in Florida. But did you know it’s also the most frequent disaster in every other state as well?
The lesson here is simple: even living in an area that doesn’t require flood insurance should NOT stop you from talking with an insurance agency about flood insurance. Everyone lives in a flood zone! You might just be in what we FEMA calls a “preferred-risk flood zone”, but more than 38% of all flood claims occur in preferred risk zones.
