More on the NFIP’s Urban Flooding Campaign

One inch of water is enough to cause over $25,000 in damage. And in a city, a flash flood could cause that damage in minutes. But flood insurance has you covered.

Talking points

Provide your clients with key information about their urban flooding risk.

  • Towns, cities, and their suburbs have more development, more concrete, and fewer places for water to go. That means a hard rain can become a flash flood in minutes.
  • And when just one inch of flood water can cause over $25,000 in damage, a small storm can become a big problem.
  • Whether your home floods due to hurricanes or heavy rains, flood insurance helps cover the cost of repairing your home and replacing your belongings.
  • Most homeowners and renters insurance policies do not cover flood damage.
  • Purchase flood insurance today for the protection and peace of mind it brings.
