Flood is the most common natural disaster.
It happens in every region of the country, near water and inland, in high risk flood zones and low risk zones, and in places that have never been flooded before.
Just inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage to your home.

Damage from flooding is not covered under your home insurance policy.
That’s why it’s important to talk to your Gulfstream agent about purchasing a separate Flood policy. Your agent can provide you with a quote and answer any questions you may have about how flood coverage works and when it applies.
Purchasing flood insurance is affordable and easy.
The average flood insurance policy is $700 per year, but if you’re located in a low risk area you may qualify for a Preferred Risk Policy, with premiums starting at only $170.
There is a 30-day waiting period for flood coverage to take effect after purchasing the policy. Keep this in mind when planning for summer storm months, which is peak season for heavy rains and flooding.
