What to expect if filing a homeowner's claim
Homeowner's insurance policies rarely cover flood-related damage. In almost all cases, flood insurance is required.
The National Flood Insurance Program is the main source for flood insurance policies in the US, though private insurers write and administer most policies backed by the federal government. Contact the company that provided your flood insurance to begin a claim.
