FORT MONMOUTH, N.J. -- Flooding is a fact of life for many New Jersey residents. Each spring and after an intense storm, floodwaters may threaten homes and businesses. Flooding can cause hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. A flood insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) offers New Jersey residents their best protection against loss. In most cases, it takes 30 days for a new NFIP policy to go into effect. Will you have flood insurance in time?
