When Flood Follows Fire, Are You Prepared?
Did you know that areas that suffer wildland fire are more susceptible to flooding? In the years after a fire, the increase of flooding and mudflows increase. After a fire occurs, burned vegetation and soil form a layer that is water-repellant resulting in the ground being unable to absorb water. The outcome is that a light rainfall can turn into a flood or mudflow.
Even if your area was not directly affected from the fire, homes that are downstream or below the burn area are still at risk. Did you know that just one inch of water can cause up to $25,000 in damage to your home? It’s important to make sure you’re protected for these additional risks to your home and property.
AFI offers flood insurance coverage that is designed to cover your home as well as your personal possessions. You may not be able to rely on federal disaster assistance, as it’s only available when a federal disaster is declared. Less than 50% of all floods are declared a disaster and many times the assistance is usually provided in the form of a loan, that must be repaid with interest.
