Flood Damage in Florida: A Growing Concern Florida is known for its tropical storms and hurricanes which can dump double digit inches of rain in a matter of days, and storm surge raises the sea level by dozens of feet, both of which cause serious flooding damage to residents and business owners. These individuals rely on their insurance carriers to help them repair the damage done to their properties.
Water Damage vs Flood Damage: What’s the Difference? Many water damage claims caused by hurricanes and tropical storms are, in fact, caused by flood damage, which is, of course, not a covered damage under most private insurance policies. While the National Flood Insurance Program offers flood insurance through private insurers, most residents in Florida do not have this coverage, in which case their claim must be denied. Flooding is defined as the following under Florida statute 627.715:
- Overflow of inland or tidal waters (tidal surge)
- Unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source
- Collapse or subsidence of land along the shore of a body of water caused by erosion or undermining
