How Can I Buy Flood Insurance?
Floods are the most common and costly natural disaster in the United States. Just one inch of water can cause $25,000 in damages.
Homeowners and renters insurance typically don’t cover flood damage. Flood insurance will protect you from the high cost of recovering from a flood. It’s how America recovers together.
