With hurricane season fast approaching, Floridians are once again preparing for the worst: storing gallons of water (remember, one gallon per person per day), cans of Spam and Vienna sausages, first aid kits, battery powered radios, flashlights and tons of batteries – we all know how to prepare for a hurricane.
But something that is all too often forgotten, until it’s too late, is the simple fact that a hurricane usually means flooding. We’ve all heard about people losing their homes due to flooding; either because they didn’t realize that homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding or because they thought flood insurance wasn’t necessary while living in a low risk area. A shocking 25% of the National Flood Insurance Program claims come from moderate-to-low risk areas and these areas receive one-third of disaster assistance for flooding.
