Flood Insurance

Homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding.

Flooding is the #1 natural disaster in Virginia. Hurricanes like Isabel and Gaston demonstrated that even “safe” areas can get hit hard in heavy storms. But flood damage is excluded from most homeowners insurance, and disaster assistance has its own limitations. Only flood insurance covers flooding.
