Just a quick hit for those who state that they don’t live in a flood zone, and that “you better build a boat if we ever get flooded”
All you need is to take a look at these photographs demonstrating flash flooding that occured in the South Hills – today!
All it takes is a large volume of rainfall in a short span of time, and virtually any area can be flooded. And, in case it wasn’t obvious – these claims would not be covered by a homeowners or renters policy (unless flood coverage was purchased, of course). Most auto insurance policies DO provide coverage for vehicles damaged by flash flooding (if physical damage coverage was purchased on the vehicle).
If nothing else, at least obtain a quote to see just how inexpensive flood insurance can be.
Enjoy your weekend, and by all means – stay dry!
