Fast Facts:

More than 20 percent of all flood claims are for properties
mapped outside of high-risk flood areas.

Over the life of a 30-year loan, your home, if located in a
 high-risk flood area, is more likely to be damaged by flood
 than by fire.

Most homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage.
