Flood Insurance

A flood could severely impact your home and valuables. Whether you live near a floodplain or outside a risk zone, you must be prepared for the worst-case scenario. One inch of flood water can cause up to $25,000 in damages.

Nearly all of Wisconsin is set to experience a 5 percent increase in the average precipitation fall, and rates are scaling up across the state. New precipitation rates increase the risk of flooding regardless of your location.

In a recent event in Mazomanie County, low-risk areas that were not mapped out as flood plains experienced ongoing problems with flooding. Through rising streams and snow melt, groundwater levels rose, and many people were not reimbursed for their total flood losses.

Extending your insurance policy

Most homeowners carry insurance policies that cover minimal flood damage. As losses can total tens of thousands from just a small flood, extending your rental or home insurance can help you prepare for disaster.

Proper flood insurance will cover your belongings and structural home after a flood. Most policies only provide disaster assistance loans that may require prepayment with interest.
