Why You Need Flood Insurance

Posted on 10/25/2013

A flood can devastate your home and your financial security. Any flood—even a small one—can cause thousands of dollars in damages. Even homeowners in low to moderate-risk zones are at risk. Up to 25% of all flood claims come from people living outside high-risk zones. Flooding happens anywhere including right here in Massachusetts. People have discovered the hard way that when it comes to floods, no one is safe. You don’t have to live near a major waterway to be flooded. Sudden severe storms can cause flooding. Just because it has never flooded in your area, doesn’t mean it won’t. You might think that your Homeowners insurance covers flooding, but it doesn’t.
