(StatePoint) Everyone should consider financial protection from the dangers of hurricanes. Though hurricanes can cause flooding in coastal areas, you don’t have to live right on the coast to experience significant damage.

Some of the most damaging floods occur when storms from a hurricane or tropical storm system travel inland, producing heavy rain hundreds of miles from the coast. And, just a few inches of water from a flood can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage.

Since standard homeowners insurance doesn't cover flooding, it's important to have protection from the floods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, and heavy rains. Flood insurance is the best way to protect yourself from devastating financial loss. Because most policies take 30 days to go into effect, the time to act is now.
