Flooding increases with certain winter weather

Posted On Fri, February 3, 2012

A recent report from the Federal Emergency Management Agency warned homeowners of the risks of flooding due to winter storms.

Due to heavy snows, as well as ice, there are many ways for water to build up in some areas of the country, according to the report. This can lead to rapid snow melts, and the vast excess of water can cause flash floods. Homeowners need to take the proper precautions to ensure their families are safe in case an unexpected natural disaster occurs.

"When it comes to reducing the vulnerability to natural disasters, the whole community has a role to play, and that includes individual citizens," said David Miller, associate administrator for FEMA's Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration. "One of the most critical ways residents can protect their homes and businesses from the severe weather that may cause flooding is to obtain flood insurance."

Consumers who don't think their insurance policy gives them the proper amount of disaster coverage may benefit from comparing home insurance quotes. Standard insurance policies do not come with disaster coverage, but to couple both can be significantly beneficial. Not can a person find a plan by looking online, but they may find an option with lower home insurance rates.
