Many homeowners do not understand the importance of flood insurance and often underestimate flood risks. Additionally, many are not aware that a homeowner’s policy does not typically cover flood. The FAIR Foundation recommends that ALL homeowners should have flood insurance. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides coverage for many homes. However, there are increasingly affordable options available in addition to purchasing coverage from the NFIP.
