Getting flood insurance

Rain damage from a tropical storm might be covered under flood insurance, and not homeowners or hurricane insurance. To learn more about insurance, call FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program at 1-888-CALL-FLOOD, or contact your local insurance agent. Do this now!

Maps are available for almost every urban area in the United States--called "Flood Insurance Rate Maps" or FIRMS--that will show you whether your home is in a high flood hazard area.
