Preparedness Tips

Floods happen in South 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.

南达科他州皮尔——这事儿不会发生在我身上。

许多南达科他州人民可能认为他们不需要购买防洪保险。他们的房屋从来没有被淹过。他们也并不居住在洪灾高发区域。

但南达科他州今年的洪灾展示了在一些不太可能发生洪灾的区域也可能面临大量损失,因此购买一份防洪保险将是一笔明智的投资。一英寸的洪水就可给一栋房屋造成高达 25,000 美元的损失。
