The Moment You Watch Rising Water Enter Your Home
Is Not The Time To Ask:
"Do We Have Good Flood Insurance?"
“Our home will never flood.”
“There’s no body of water anywhere close to us.”
“We don’t live in a flood zone, so we’re good.”
For some reason, people think they can outsmart water. They believe they can predict where flooding will occur. Sure, they know that everyone is at risk for fire, theft and even storm damage. But when it comes to flooding, they falsely believe, “That will NEVER happen to us.”
Here’s why we have this FALSE sense of security when it comes to flooding: we think of flooding as the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Water up to the second floor… cars floating away… people stranded on their roofs. But fact is, most home flooding isn’t a result of hurricanes. Plus, most any home in the Middle Tennessee area is susceptible to flooding. Here are a few facts about flooding:
- The damage from just ONE INCH of water can cost a homeowner upwards of $20,000.
- Flash floods from heavy rains can occur anywhere and with very little notice.
- Even in a 100-year flood plain, your home has a 1% chance of flooding EVERY year.
- Houston has experienced THREE 500-year floods in the last THREE years!
- If a home valued at $250,000 gets flooded, it may incur more damage than it’s worth!
