Flood Resources for Individuals and Businesses

National Flood Insurance Program: Even those not in a floodplain should consider supplemental flood insurance. Most insurance companies will not cover flooding if the water is coming from outside the home. Flood insurance is available through most homeowners and renters insurance agencies and the National Flood Insurance Program. Take steps to protect your home, family, and financial security throughout the year, and to take extra precautions when flooding is predicted in your area.
