Floods can occur in nearly any state. Virginia may be at low-to-moderate risk for flooding, but it's important to be prepared should a disaster strike. You'd do well to sign up for flood insurance from a reputable agent so that you don't end up with hefty repair or replacement costs.
Depending on where you live on the floodplain, you may have to get flood insurance. This is because traditional home insurance won't be enough to cover the type of damages that may occur due to flooding. Flood insurance is a separate policy. You may be eligible to receive insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program. If you are, you still may not have the coverage you want, and it will be a good idea to set up an additional policy through an agent.
If you've never experienced a flood, you may not realize the perils associated with them. A great deal of damage can occur that may leave your home completely uninhabitable. Even if the damage isn't so extreme, you could end up needing to have your roof, door, porch, and other parts of your home repaired or placed. There may be just leaks from holes in your roof, or it could be to the extent of having a burst pipe. Either way, it's in your best interest to have a policy in place to prevent the cost and headache of not being prepared.
