It is important for homeowners and insurance professionals to know levees do not eliminate the risk of flooding, but reduce the risk. This fact sheet provides basic levee information, explains FEMA’s role in identifying levee-related flood risks and details proactive measures that homeowners can take to help reduce their risk. Flooding causes more damage annually than any other form of natural disaster, but is not covered by most homeowners’ insurance policies. Insurance agents can help clients prevent financial disaster by recommending flood insurance coverage.
