Considering Flood Insurance?

After recent rainfall and with hurricane season approaching, are you concerned about your home and its flooding risk? Do you know whether your home is in a flood plain? The city offers an interactive flood plain map that allows you to enter your address and see if your home or business falls in one of the identified flood plain areas. This tool assists you in determining the level of flood insurance you may decide to purchase. For more information regarding flooding, please visit pflugervilletx.gov/floodplain.

Tips: Make sure you review your existing home insurance coverage and check if policy limits are enough to replace your home or property in the event of a disaster. Talk to your insurance agent. Make a home inventory with a detailed list and photos of your belongings so you can make an insurance claim if one needs to be created. Review your auto insurance and check on the level of comprehensive coverage if it were to hail or flood.
