Flooding is one of the most common natural disasters in the United States and one of Florida’s most frequent hazards. There are several reasons why flooding can occur, such as heavy rainfall, storm surge, or river overflow. Depending on your home’s location, it can be at a higher or lower risk for flooding. However, you do not have to live in a high-risk flood zone to experience costly damages from floods. Every home has some level of risk for flood damage, and per the NFIP, roughly 25% of their flood insurance claims paid in 2015, were for policies located in low-risk areas. Just an inch of flood water can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home. For these reason, regardless of your home’s risk level, it is imperative to purchase flood insurance.
Edison Insurance Company offers a certified flood enforcement which provides the flood protection policyholders need. Edison offers a broad variety of flood coverage options not currently offered through the NFIP, or with other private carriers.
