Floods can happen anywhere, however recent Wildfires in several Western States have increased the risk of large-scale flooding & mud flows in these areas. Wildfires increase the risk of flooding because the fire removes vegetation & chars the ground, leaving it unable to absorb rainfall the way it normally would. The risk of floods and mud slides remain high for up to five years after wildfires.
Your business insurance policy & homeowners insurance policy does not include flood insurance. No matter what area of the country you live in, don’t leave your home or business unprotected! Contact the Cossio Insurance Agency today to get flood insurance coverage & let us be your lifesaver!
