The Rising Cost of Flooding

| August 17, 2022

High water is in the news for all the wrong reasons.

We like to pretend flooding is someone else’s problem. But flooding can hit anyone, anywhere, even if you think your home is high and dry.

Check out these inundating facts about a huge problem:

  • We’re Number One! Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the world.
  • All Are Welcome! Flooding can hit anywhere—25% of floods happen in low to mid-risk areas.
  • Rising Tide Lifts All Boats! Current predictions anticipate damage from flooding to rise by 67% in the next 30 years.

It might be a great time to check out flood insurance if you haven’t done so already. Flooding is a big concern and will only become more common in the future. But with a little protection, you can ride out the storm.
