Spring is a month away.

With it comes warmer weather and longer days, but also unpredictable weather extremes that can lead to flooding. Did you know just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage? And while just about anyone can experience spring flooding, many don’t have insurance.

Now is the time to consider your risk and work to reduce it…. Before snow melt and spring rains cause flooding near your home or business. The costs can be devastating and only flood insurance will cover the damage.

Preparation

Every family should have an emergency evacuation plan and practice it. It’s good to always have an emergency kit on hand and emergency supplies, too. And if you have pets, be sure your plan includes them!

Here’s another thing that comes up often when discussing many types of emergencies and insurance… If you don’t already have a thorough home inventory, take the time to conduct one soon! (Click here for tips on creating your household inventory.) You never know when disaster may strike.
