For Residents with a Flood Insurance Policy
If your building and/or contents are covered by flood insurance and you experienced damage, please contact your insurance company immediately to file a claim. Please visit FEMA's FloodSmart, Flood Insurance Claims Handbook and Tips for Filing an Insurance Claim Web sites for more information about filing a claim.
If you had flood insurance at the time of the flood and your community determines your structure to be substantially damaged and is requiring you to meet certain building requirements contained in the community's floodplain ordinance, you may be eligible for the Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) coverage in your policy. Flood insurance policyholders in high-risk areas, also known as special flood hazard areas, can get up to $30,000 to help pay the costs to bring their home or business into compliance with their community's floodplain ordinance. For more information about ICC, please visit FEMA's Web site and contact your insurance company.
