Homeowners insurance does not cover damage to your home from a flood. Defined by the National Flood insurance Program (NFIP) , a flood is a general and temporary condition of a partial or complete inundation of two or more acres of normally dry land area or two or more properties (at least one of which is your property).
Typically, you will need a separate flood insurance policy, which is available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or through private flood companies. Additionally, if the home you purchased is in a flood zone and the home loan is financed by a bank or lender, flood insurance coverage will be mandatory. You can also purchase it as a supplement measure to reduce any risk. Be mindful of very specific exclusions to personal properties and areas of the house in flood policies.
