National Flood Insurance Program Outreach

Anywhere it rains, it can flood.

Did you know:

  • Approximately 80% of Hurricane Harvey damaged properties did not have flood insurance; 65% of those homes were not in a high-risk flood zone
  • $6,000 was the average FEMA Harvey claim pay-out without flood insurance
  • $116,000 was the average pay-out for Harvey with flood insurance (as of October 2018)
  • One inch of flooding can cause $25,000 worth of damage in your home

Please consider adding the below flood insurance-related links to your website, community newsletter, blog and social media sites to help citizens become financially prepared for a flood. FEMA encourages all homeowners and renters to purchase flood insurance.
