WHO TO CALL FOR FLOOD INSURANCE INFORMATION - Tuesday, March 01, 2011

 

Reminder to consider flood insurance March 1 2011 risk flood hazard area to be eligible for coverage. In fact, more than 20 percent of all claims come from floods that happened in low or moderate floodrisk areas. Find out more about flood insurance and your flood risk online at http://www.floodsmart.gov or call 18883799531.

From the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management, this is a reminder for our citizens that flood insurance must be in effect for 30 days or damages will not be covered. Currently the forecast calls for every major river in Minnesota to overflow. That translates into overland flooding as well and can affect the majority of people in our state. With the high snow content in our area we could potentially face the same problem.

Flood insurance is available to everyone in those communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program. Homes and businesses do not have to be in a high

The average cost of a flood insurance premium in Minnesota is about $663 a year – less than $2 a day for financial protection from what could be devastating effects of a flood in a home or business. Flood insurance policies can be purchased for both the property and contents; an insurance agent can tailor a policy to fit specific needs.
