Will Your Home Flood?
August 27, 2010

This is an excellent graph that shows the risk of flooding at your home.  Most of you live in a 50-year floodplain, but, as you can see, you still have a 6 percent chance of your home flooding in the span of 30 years.  We see it happen all the time on the news: a homeowner doesn’t think their home would ever flood, but they are standing in front of their flooded home.  I can’t stress enough how important it is for all of you to have flood insurance.  If you live in a 500-year floodplain, the insurance is fairly inexpensive.
