Flood Insurance Is Year’s Most Important
Flood insurance – do you have it? If you do, you are lucky this year. The incredible amounts of snow and the freezing cold temperatures of this winter are not going to simply disappear once spring sets in.
A traditional feature of spring is that it is pretty… wet. All the snow melts and rainfalls are rather common during this time of the year. But the snow has been anything but common this year for those living in areas such as Brazoria, Friendswood, Galveston, Houston, League City, Pearland, Texas Gulf Coast.
And with the coming of spring and melting of ice, only one thing can follow: great amounts of melted snow. That means that the streets of the city you live in might not be able to handle all the water. Which, combined with spring’s rainfalls, will lead to flooding.
So if you already have flood insurance, you are lucky to get covered for the eventual losses that might occur as a result of this year’s floods.
Canada is going through a rough time too. Most of North America is freezing cold. It is so cold out there that people were able to create fully functional car of ice. They sculpted ice in the shape of a car and put it on top of an engine; added some lights, and the car is good to hit the streets. This is how much ice and snow there is.
But flood insurance will not cover for your losses this year only. As weather is getting more and more extreme, you might need your flood insurance more often than you might think.
Insurance agents from all around the world are already taking into consideration increasing prices for insurance policies. Their main reason? The fact that extreme weather conditions are more frequent now than ever.
So… do you have flood insurance? If not, this is the high time you paid for one.
