Insurance company says flood insurance is important

Flood insurance importance

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany insurance companies said if you noticed more water in your yard after this weekend’s flooding, you may want to look into getting flood insurance.

WALB News 10 spoke with Clint Ivy at Fleming and Riles Insurance in Albany. Ivy said torrential rain fall this week, along with holding ponds, caused more water to get into the streets and into homes.

Homeowner's insurance does not cover some water damage.

Ivy said if you notice that water got a little close to your house this week, on your front porch or garage, you may want to get prices on flood insurance just in case another flood comes our way.
