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
