North Dakotans Urged to Buy Flood Insurance Before Spring Melt

February 3, 2009

With record amounts of snow in North Dakota, Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm is urging homeowners, renters and business owners to consider buying a flood insurance policy.

Hamm says there’s a 30-day waiting period before a policy becomes effective, and it’s imperative that people who might be at risk of spring flooding act quickly.

Hamm says homeowner’s policies don’t cover flooding. Flood insurance is underwritten by the National Flood Insurance Program.

Hamm says that since not all floods are declared disasters, people should not count on federal disaster aid to bail them out.
