What Happens If That River Water Gets In Your Home?
Flood insurance can cover the damages.
Just two inches of water in a one thousand square foot home can cause over 10 thousand dollars in damages.
If you don't have flood insurance, just know that standard homeowners insurance doesn't cover flooding.
The cost to protect your home from flooding varies, depending on how much insurance you get, what it covers, and the flood risk where you live.
There is a 30 day waiting period from the time that you purchase flood insurance.
