A Flood Insurance Update
In the past 5 years, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods. Flood insurance cannot be purchased during a flood. There is a 30 day waiting period once the application is processed.The exception to this is for loan closings. Therefore, it is a good idea to start thinking about flood insurance right now.
According to FloodSmart.gov, the official site of the National Flood Insurance Program, at least 25% of businesses that shut down after a flood never re-open. According to the same source, only a very small percentage of homeowners buy flood insurance.
Many business owners and homeowners are under the mistaken impression that their insurance policies cover them for damages arising from floods. While your personal insurance and/or business insurance policy may cover water damage, flood coverage is excluded. Just like homeowner’s flood insurance, commercial flood coverage must be purchased separately in a dedicated policy.
