Many insurance companies offer a separate insurance policy for “Flood Insurance”. It is important to know the difference between flood damage and water damage.
FEMA definition of “Flood” is listed below:
A general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of normally dry land areas from:
(1) The overflow of inland or tidal waters;
(2) The unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source;
(3) Mudslides (i.e., mudflows) which are proximately caused by flooding and are akin to a river of liquid and flowing mud on the surfaces of normally dry land areas, as when earth is carried by a current of water and deposited along the path of the current.
A flood inundates a floodplain. Most floods fall into three major categories: riverine flooding, coastal flooding, and shallow flooding. Alluvial fan flooding is another type of flooding more common in the mountainous western states.
If a business or residential property is in a designated flood zone, a separate flood insurance policy will need to be purchased to cover any potential flood damage claims. The property owners may take precautionary measures to minimize or to prevent potential flood damage to their property by making their basements watertight or raising the foundation of the property.
