The choice is yours, but here are a few things to consider. According to FEMA.gov
, the damage from one inch of standing water in your home could cost you as much as $20,000. If you think love is powerful, you should see what 12 inches of fast moving water can do to your car. Flash floods carry an average 10 to 20 foot high waters. Still not sure? Okay. How about now? If you live in a single family home valued at $250,000 that gets flooded, the damage that occurs will most likely cost more than your home’s worth. At the end of the day, the choice really is yours. As for me and my home, well, we’ve got flood insurance.
