Where can it flood in Florida?
Any property that receives rain, it can flood. The mistake many people make when it comes to flood insurance is that their home is or is not in a flood zone. The truth is all properties in Florida are either in a low-risk or a high-risk flood zone.
It is estimated that 25-30% of flood damage is caused in lower risk areas of the flood zone. Research shows that the average flood claim in 2014 was a staggering $44,000 and that Florida was the top state to receive such claims. The report further states that Severe Thunderstorms were the leading natural cause of disasters.
