Even if you live inland miles away from the beautiful beaches, your Florida home or business may be at risk of flooding.
In fact, many fail to realize that even areas several hundred miles away from the coastline can be affected by flood risks created by hurricanes and tropical storms, even areas designated as low or moderate flood zone risks.
When it comes to Florida Flood Insurance Coverage, there are several reasons you need flood insurance:
Please understand that...
Standard property insurance and homeowners insurance policies do not cover flood damage and that there is a 30-day waiting period before newly purchased flood coverage goes into effect.
Also know that homes and businesses located in high risk areas such as the Coastline have a 22% chance of experiencing a flood over the life of a 30-year mortgage.
A quarter of the businesses that close their doors during a flood never reopen them, and an uninsured home that sustains severe flood damage can cause financial and emotional devastation.
