(Bloomberg) -- More than half the U.S. population lives in coastal areas that are “increasingly vulnerable” to the effects of climate change, which will ripple throughout the U.S. economy, a White House advisory group’s report concluded.
The report released today enumerates the impact across the U.S., including a 71% increase in heavy rain and snow in the Northeast during the past half-century and an increased risk from hurricanes linked to higher sea levels.
Flooding is nature's most common natural disaster. The average homeowner is five times more likely to incur flood damage than fire damage. If you live in a high-risk zone, you have a one-in-four chance of experiencing flood damage. Almost 25% of all flood claims come from low- to moderate-risk areas and 90% of all presidential-declared disasters involved flooding. Homeowner's policies may not cover the flood damage, and the out-of-pocket costs can be burdensome.
Flood insurance is designed to provide an alternative to disaster assistance to reduce the escalating costs of repairing damage to buildings and their contents caused by floods. While your homeowner's policy may cover fire, tornado, or even earthquake damage, most EXCLUDE damage caused by flooding. Those that cover SOME flood damage do so by specific endorsement and only for a certain dollar amount. Check with your insurance agent to see what coverage is available.

Earthquakes, floods, and other disasters can seriously disrupt normal life. Services may not be available, transportation may be cut off and roads may be blocked. In some cases, you may be forced to evacuate. Be ready to respond to any situation by assembling and maintaining a Disaster Supplies Kit.
