Flooding Can Happen Anywhere

According to the National Weather Service "Approximately seventy-five percent of all Presidental disaster declarations are associated with flooding." NOAA list the most common flood hazards in the United States as:

*Flash Flooding

*River Flooding

*Storm Surge and Costal Inundation from Non -Tropical Systems

*Burn Scars/ Debris Flows (Caused by Wildfires)

*Ice/ Debris Jams

*Snowmelt

*Dry Wash (Caused by heavy rainfall in dry areas)

*Dam Breaks/ Levee Failure

Just because you havents experianced a flood doesnt mean you wont in the future. In fact, 20% of all claims paid by the National Flood Insurance Program were for polices in low-risk communities. On average, floods cost $3.5 billion in the annual losses in the U.S. and Commercial flood claims  average more than $75,000.
