The past days our eyes where on Fargo, North Dakota, menaced by the rising Red River. It was pretty scarry to watch the scenes on TV. Those images lead me to think about my own community.
- Floods are the most common hazard in the US
- Most homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage
- Everyone is at risk of flooding
THE SMARTEST AND SAFEST WAY TO GO IS: BUY FLOOD INSURANCE.
Premiums can be as low as $119 for low risk areas. Cost of flooding can be very expensive over $7,800 in many cases.
