The risk of flooding worsens, after several days of rain
The risk of flooding worsens, after several days of rain. The rains of the season are more and more present and their ravages too. In South Florida, the ground is saturated and any precipitation is a cause for concern.
We really can’t fight nature, so the best remedy is to have flood insurance to protect your most precious asset.
With flood insurance, you will obtain financial protection for the damages suffered by the structures of your house, as well as the electrical system, the pipes, the air conditioners, and your belongings in the event of a flood of water. In this way, you would obtain financial compensation in case your property is affected and your belongings are damaged.
Keep in mind, when buying flood insurance, that the typical policy does not cover spaces located on the outside of your property, swimming pools or basements, cash, or valuables. In other words, after suffering a flood you cannot claim insurance for having suffered the loss of 10,000 dollars in bills that you kept in a box under your bed.
It is recommended that you have an inventory of your home, keep valuable documents in a place where the waters cannot reach, and check that everything that is susceptible to damage in a flood of waters is included in your policy. The risk of flooding worsens, after several days of rain.
