According to FEMA, every home is vulnerable to flooding. Just an inch of water can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage.
Floods can happen anywhere and anytime. Recently, flash flooding in Arizona accounted for at least 9 fatalities.
Properties in moderate- and low-risk areas account for more than 20 percent of the country’s NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) claims and receive a third of flood-related federal disaster assistance. Regardless of your home’s risk, it’s important that you are prepared in the event of a flooding.
