Preparedness Tips

Floods happen in North Dakota not only during spring runoff but can occur year-round. Summer thunderstorms producing heavy rain can result in localized flooding that affect a smaller area. A few inches of water in a 1,000-square foot home could cost more than $10,000 in repairs and replacement of personal possessions and homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover most floods. Remember it does not take a lot of water to cause a lot of damage. Learn more about protecting your home or business with flood insurance.
