Mailbox Surrounded by FloodwatersPeople see natural disasters occurring on the news and think, "Oh, that won't happen to me."; But when it comes to floods, they can occur anywhere and at any time. And they're not always easy to predict. One of the best ways you can protect your house, car and family is to purchase flood insurance before floodwaters have a chance to do damages.

Still not convinced it could happen in your Minnesota hometown? You might recall the Red River flood back in April and May of 1997, affecting Minnesota, North Dakota and southern Manitoba. It was the worst flood event the area had seen since 1826, caused by abundant snowfall and extreme temperatures. The flood stretched throughout the Red River Valley, causing damages over three miles inland. These damages cost an estimated total of $3.5 billion.

While a flood this drastic does not occur every year, it does show that Mother Nature doesn't take notes from mankind. Fortunately, with the help of flood insurance, you can be reimbursed for expenses related to the damages. This financial assistance can be extremely helpful when it comes time to repair or rebuild your home.

A good flood insurance policy can help cover:
  • Cleanup after a flood
  • Mold/mildew removal
  • Repairs as needed
  • Replacement of carpeting, sheetrock and other soft materials
  • Rebuilding as needed
  • Temporary living expenses, if you must relocate during repairs
Some people assume that floods are covered under their home insurance. In many cases, this is not the case. However, flood coverage can often be added onto your existing policy. Ask your independent insurance agent about how flood insurance can benefit your family. And remember, don't wait until a big storm is predicted because most flood insurance policies have a 30-day waiting period.
