Know your deductible
Every insurance policy has a deductible, which is the amount of the claim the insured must pay out-of-pocket before the insurance company pays the rest, according to the insurance policy. Check what your deductible is for hurricane damage, as some policies have a higher deductible for damages caused by a hurricane.
Does homeowners insurance cover flooding?
For the most part, homeowners insurance covers property damage that is the result of wind, wind-driven rain, and water that enters your home through windows, doors, holes in walls and the roof. But when water damages your home because of storm surge or from a body of water overflowing, this is considered flooding and flood damage is not covered under the standard homeowners insurance policy. Flood insurance covers this type of property damage. So if you live in an area of Florida that may experience flooding, it is wise to consider purchasing flood insurance.
Car insurance may cover flooding of vehicle
Some automobile insurance policies include comprehensive coverage, which provides insurance against physical damage to your vehicle that is not the result of a car accident. In that case, flooding of your vehicle may be covered under your car insurance policy. It is not uncommon for the insurance company to declare the car a total loss if the water damage is significant, in which case they will pay the claim for the value of the car.
