For most of us, the risk of a losing everything in a flood is NOT something we lie awake in bed worrying about at night.

Flooding disasters tend to be a highly infrequent, once-in-a-lifetime event that happens to other people. They make for a compelling story on the nightly news, “but that kind of thing would NEVER happen to us.” (or so we tell ourselves).

It’s an understandable bias, because statistically speaking, you’ll probably never have to deal with it…until it happens and then suddenly you’re part of that dreaded statistic.

Like most natural disasters, a flood has the capacity to wipe out everything you own in a matter of seconds…  so if there is ANY risk that your property is situated in a flood plain – is it really work rolling the dice on this?

Why It’s Important

Flooding may or may not end up hitting you where you live – but regardless of how concerned you are about it, there are at least a few solid reasons why you should go through the motions of checking whether your property is situated in (or anywhere near) a flood zone.
