How To Minimize The Risk Of Flooding At Home

Whether or not flood damage is covered in your home insurance policy depends on your policy's coverage options and what caused the flooding in the first place. If your window is broken during a tornado and water enters your home, typically you will be covered. If water damage is the result of a "sudden and accidental discharge of water" such as an extreme heavy downpour, a burst pipe or a backed-up sewer, you are likely covered provided you have this endorsement on your policy (it's optional and you have to request it).
