Houston Flooding is a growing concern in Texas
Every year thousands of Houstonians become victims of the flooding in Texas.
Houston Flooding, says although the weather year round is fairly decent, the weather in Texas can also change dramatically. It all begins with rain. The flooding begins when the rain doesn't stop and sewer drains fill up. The water backs up and has no where else to go. That is when water starts to fill the streets.
Did you know a couple inches of water can cause thousands of dollars in damage? If you don't believe me, just ask the thousands of victims that didn't have flood insurance who lost everything. Years and years of personal belongings accumulated throughout the years lost in a blink of an eye from flooding.
Houston is one of the fastest growing cities in America. Who would have predicted this type of population growth? Every day, trees are being knocked down to build new land developments. Sewer systems are being updated and altered daily to meet the demand of new development projects. Some say, all the new developments are part of the reasons for some of the flooding. No one knows for sure. The one thing we know for sure is it rains a lot in Houston. And when it does we all wonder if it will flood again.
Houston Flood Insurance
Each year the news show live videos and pictures of vehicles submerged in water. Houses with water stains two to four feet high and personal property of victims floating in the rivers formed from the devastating weather.
Yet the question remains: Why are so many homeowners and renters still without flood insurance?
Some would say it is too expensive. However, a percentage of those who say that, never tried to get a quote and the rest who did get a quote chose not to purchase a policy. Remember, having insurance is smart and helps reduce your financial risk. The cost of flood insurance is cheaper in the long run. Rather than losing all your personal belongings and having to buy it all over again with your own hard earned money.
Flood insurance is available for anyone who rents an apartment or owns a home. Keep in mind that most flood policies have a 30 day waiting period from the date of purchase and have to be paid in full.
