ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Atlanta floods have left a lot of destruction in their path, causing people in Albany to consider buying a flood insurance plan. 

A State Farm Insurance agent said he's been flooded with calls this week. People have been asking about a flood insurance policy that's best for them.

State Farm agent Jay Kimbro said one mistake many people make is they think their homeowners insurance covers flood insurance, but they are two different entities.

"It's sad because the majority of people don't have flood insurance because it is a policy separate from your homeowners policy," Kimbro explained. "It's a separate need that has to be addressed."

Kimbro advises people who sign up for a flood insurance policy that it takes 30 days for it to go into affect.
