Flood Insurance: California Businesses & Homeowners Advised to Secure Coverage

According to a recent article in the Insurance Journal, the threat of flood in California is not over just because the inclement weather has subsided:

California Businesses, Residents Urged to Consider Flood Insurance

While California may have survived this past winter’s storms, experts are urging businesses and residents to consider flood insurance.

The state’s winters storms left behind a massive snow pack 165 percent greater than normal, and reservoirs across the state are near-full, according to the Insurance Information Network of California. Experts have expressed concerns that levees under pressure from increased runoff could leak or rupture, leaving unprepared homeowners, renters and business owners scrambling to protect their property. Without flood insurance, they also may not secure the funding to rebuild.

“Flood control systems aren’t a guarantee against damage,” said Candysse Miller, IINC executive director. “Just a few inches of water can be disastrous, and flood damage typically is not covered under standard home and business insurance policies.”
