Rising water can cause severe damage to your home and the belongings inside. Homeowner’s insurance covers some costs associated with weather-related damage, but damages caused by floods are typically excluded from all homeowner’s policies. If you live in an area susceptible to flooding, you’ll need flood insurance to protect your home and its contents.
Flooding is defined as a general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of normally dry land at least 2 acres from:
- Overflow of inland or tidal waters
- Unusual and rapid accumulation of runoff of surface waters
- Mudslides as a result of flooding
