Flood insurance provides protection for destruction caused by floods. Although it may not seem like much, even a few inches of water can cause damage and result in thousands of dollars in repair costs. Homeowners insurance does not cover floods but purchasing Flood insurance through the New York City Business Group can protect you.
If your property is located in the FEMA flood map you are required to have flood insurance. Flood coverage offers protection against losses from heavy rain falls, storm surges, blocked storm drainage systems, etc.
