From Heavy Rains to Hurricanes, Be Ready with Flood Insurance

Everything is bigger in Texas—especially the storms! With hurricane season near, now is the time to prepare and protect your corner of the world with a National Flood Insurance Policy (NFIP), so you are covered when storms blow in. 

When Harvey hit, more than 87,000 Texans filed flood insurance claims and received expedited payments to help begin rebuilding their homes and lives. Hurricanes are not the only flood risk when living along the Texas Gulf Coast, heavy spring rains can also lead to flash flooding.

In fact, flooding is the most common, and costly, natural disaster in the United States, with just one inch of water in an average-sized home potentially causing more than $25,000 in damage. Most homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding, so be ready with a NFIP flood policy to safeguard both your home and belongings.

Make sure you’re protected today! It may take up to 30 days for flood insurance to go into effect. Visit or call 800-427-4661 to learn more.
