Flood Insurance

Wisconsin emergency officials want homeowners to get flood insurance. It is as simple as that.

Flooding in August 2007 caused $112.4 million in damage to property and crops. Another round of floods in June 2008 caused more than $765 million in damage. Wisconsin Emergency Management says those floods were the costliest natural disaster in state history.

The water table in most of Southern Wisconsin is still above normal after last spring's floods and heavy snow in December.

Typical HOMEOWNER policies do not cover flood damage. You may contact the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) direct at this web site:

You can also contact our office directly (262-473-3930) and ask for either Duane or Ron and they can secure quotes and issue policies for you. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN A FLOOD PLAIN TO BUY FLOOD INSURANCE. Call us today and we can discuss your options.
