Depending on what causes the flood, your basic homeowner’s insurance policy may or may not cover your damages. Floods caused by natural events, such as a torrential downpour or runoff are typically not covered. If you live in a high-risk flood prone area, and if your community is a participating community, you will likely want to get flood insurance. To find out if your community participates, talk with your insurance agent or visit your municipality’s website.
If your home experiences water damage due to a non-natural occurrence, such as a leak, then your basic homeowner’s insurance will cover damage to your home or belongings. Talk to your insurance agent to see what kind of coverage you have on your home. Will your coverage take care of your furnishings, pack in and pack out, or living accommodations while your home is being repaired? Knowing what your policy covers ahead of time can help alleviate some of the stress associated with a catastrophic event like a house flood.
