Ms. Worters noted that standard homeowner policies don’t cover damage from floodwaters, even if it is caused by a hurricane’s storm surge. Homeowners must buy separate flood coverage, either through the National Flood Insurance Program or from private companies. There is often a waiting period (30 days, in the case of federal flood insurance) before flood policies take effect. Homeowners who want coverage beyond a standard flood policy can also consider extra insurance, available from excess or surplus lines insurers.
By grading your yard, you’ll have leveled out any problem areas, making it easier to add features like a swimming pool or fire pit. These types of projects add value to your home, especially if the houses around you already have these features. Give it a thought and maybe add this kind of renovation to the plans you have for your house when you save enough money one day.
The outcome of these disasters — many uninsured and underinsured consumers — should serve as a call to action for insurers. They must do more to educate consumers on what is not protected against losses in the policies they purchase.
