Flood Insurance and Spring Weather

By April 8, 2015May 24th, 2017Blog

The arrival of spring brings long-awaited relief from severe winter weather, especially in the Northeast.

For our clients, this means an entirely new set of seasonal threats you may not be aware of—snowmelt, ice jams, and spring storms. Until the frozen ground thaws, heavy rains cannot be absorbed. This can cause streams, rivers, and lakes to overflow and cause flooding.

Floods are the most common and costly natural disaster in the United States, and many consumers are unaware that standard homeowners insurance does not cover losses due to flooding. Arbor can help you find financial protection with a flood insurance policy. Remember, it typically takes 30 days for a policy to take effect, so don’t wait. Call us today at 610-437-3340 ext. 246 or email us at info@arborig.com.
