Protection Against Flooding

Bookmark and Share

Given the severity of the 2011 hurricane season, homeowners should consider purchasing flood insurance to protect their property.  The most recent flood inducing catastrophe Hurricane Irene caused flood damage throughout much of the East coast, reminding many of the importance of flood insurance.

Did you know that coverage for flood damage resulting from surface water, including storm surge caused by hurricanes, is excluded under standard homeowners and renters insurance policies?

Affordable protection is available to property owners who live in communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program, which is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 

State Auto, through our respected third-party administrator National Flood Services (NFS), offers federally-backed flood insurance to qualifying customers for their residences, businesses, and farming operations.
