Understand Your Risk for Winter Flooding and Prepare

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Much of the country already has experienced cold winter weather and snow this season. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) wants to take this time to remind residents of two things that put many homeowners at risk during the winter months. First, the dangers of severe weather and related flooding do not end when colder weather begins. Floods are a year-round hazard, and they can be especially damaging during the winter due to heavy seasonal rains, melting snows and other factors. Second, most homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage. Without the financial safety net that flood insurance provides, residents may be forced to cover thousands of dollars in damage on their own.
