Flooding Can Happen Anywhere
According to the National Weather Service (NOAA), "approximately 75% of all Presidential disaster declarations are associated with flooding." NOAA lists the most common flood hazards in the United States as:
Flash Flooding, River Flooding, Storm Surge and Coastal Inundation from Tropical and Non-Tropical Systems, Burn Scars/Debris Flows (caused by wildfires), Ice/Debris Jams, Snowmelt, Dry Wash (caused by heavy rainfall in dry areas), and Dam Breaks/Levee Failures
Just because you haven't experienced a flood doesn't mean you won't in the future. In fact, 20% of all claims paid by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) were for policies in low-risk communities. On average, floods cost $3.5 billion in annual losses in the U.S., and commercial flood claims average more than $75,000 (NFIP).
