Flood Information

Flood Insurance

In the event of a flood are you and your family adequately prepared? There is a 30-day waiting period for new flood insurance policies to take effect once they are purchased. Floodplain residents should consider buying flood insurance if you think your home is potentially vulnerable. Historically, about one-third of all flood insurance claims come outside the mapped regulatory floodplain area (for 100 year floods).

For more information about flood insurance, contact your insurance agent or visit the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program for more information.
