    Very good information. Do you have something similar an agency could use to send out to their clients. Something really good would be that town in Nevada that flooded a number of months ago and only one person had flood insurance.

    Don\’t forget the exposure if key suppliers are flooded.

    An extremely informative article; a copy of this article should be included and asked to be initialed by the client at all mortgage closings.
    It is also a good idea to present this article to all prospective clients for homeowners and commercial property insurance.

    It seems to me that the insurance agent is primarily responsible for understanding their client’s exposures and educating them on the products available to protect them. I’ve heard the nonsensical arguments of why people “don’t need” flood insurance for decades. Bottom line is, they’re willing to roll the dice and go cheap when it comes to spending a couple of hundred extra dollars when they see no immediate benefit. If people don’t get the message, who’s at fault? The property owners themselves AND their agents.

    Having handled thousands of claims over the years, I have no sympathy for people who disregard the advise of a good agent to save a few bucks. It’s their right. But when they get burned (no pun) I don’t want them coming to the government asking for a handout to compensate for their bad decision.

    This is an excellent article. I work on the other side of the table (the mapping of flood hazard areas, risk communication, etc.), and this is the exact type of information, written in an easy-to-understand way, that homeowners need to know and understand.
