The most costly natural disaster is caused by flood, whether from a severe rainstorm, hurricane, or even a broken water main outside your door.
The typical homeowners insurance policy does not cover flood. The best way to repair your damaged home and personal property is with a Flood Insurance policy.
The "Cost of Flooding Tool" gives you a graphic representation of just how much damage as little as 1" of water will cost to repair. Move the slider and prepare to be shocked.
The "Hidden Risks Can Cause Flooding" video demonstrates how new development increases the risk of flooding in your community.
For the first time in 50 years, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is changing how they determine flood insurance premiums.
The Legacy Rating Methodology was based on the following factors:
• •Flood Insurance Rate Map Zones •Base Flood Elevations •Foundation Types •Structural Elevations ( in Special Flood Hazard Areas only) •
Also included in this calculation was the 1% chance of flooding, FEMA-Sourced data, and fees and surcharges.
Under the old system, homeowners in the same zone paid the same premium. So, the home with a replacement cost of $1,000,000 paid the same flood insurance premium as a home with a replacement cost of $500,000.
Not exactly a fair system. And, this system helped create an NFIP deficit of 21 billion dollars.
With Risk Rating 2.0: Equity in Action, in addition to FEMA-Sourced Data, and Fees and Surcharges, the New Pricing Methodology will include;
•Additional Data Sources from the Federal government
and commercially available third-party data
•Each homes’ Replacement Cost
•Distance to flooding sources
•First Floor Height
•Number of Floors
•Broader range of Flood frequencies
All in all, these changes will result in a fairer, more equitable rating system.
