As we approach flood season residents should evaluate the need for flood insurance. Many residents do not realize that damage from flooding is not covered by homeowners insurance and requires a seperate flood insurance policy. Flood insurance polices also require a 30 day waiting period to take affect, so don't wait until flooding begins. Visit floodsmart.gov for more information on the federally backed National Flood Insurance Program.
