More Flood Facts

Phew! The Northeast can finally come up for air! With the worst flooding in years happening just a little while ago, more and more information has been coming out about the nature of floods, the limitations of homeowner’s insurance policies and the coverage that comes with flood insurance policies. If you’re still dealing with the aftermath of the soaking of the North (and even if you’re not…), here are some more helpful facts that you should know, courtesy of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP):

  • Just an inch of water can cause costly damage to your property.
  • A car can easily be carried away by just 2 feet of flood water.
  • Last year, one-third of all claims paid by the NFIP were for policies in low-risk communities.

Our agents at Encharter Insurance want to help you recover as quickly and as easily as possible if you are still struggling to piece your life together after the tragic floods. If you have any questions or concerns, you can call us at 888-865-1244.
