Unfortunately, it’s a reality of modern life in Roanoke and elsewhere. Certain areas have repeated problems with flooding. As we saw last year when our neighbors in West Virginia were hit with horrific flooding, the effects can be devastating.
The Roanoke region has done a lot of work to prepare for flooding and protect residents and their property. However, the rain we’ve had for the past several days got me thinking about flooding and flood insurance, which prompted me to share this information about the National Flood Insurance Program. As with any insurance policy, you’ll want to consult your insurance professional before making any decisions.
