Flood insurance is different from homeowner’s insurance and requires a separate policy. Without flood insurance coverage in your hurricane supply kit, you may have difficulties recovering from the devastating impacts of flooding caused by a hurricane or tropical storm.

Knowing your flood zone is one part of being flood-aware, but it’s not the whole picture. There are tools available to help you find your flood zone, like the Virginia Flood Risk Information System, but even those outside a high-risk flood zone could be at risk of flooding. Hampton Roads locals will not soon forget the devastating flood damage caused by Hurricane Matthew in October 2016, which brought strong winds and heavy rainfall. Of the Hampton Roads households that were impacted, 84 percent were outside high-risk mapped flood zones. Everyone in Hampton Roads should prepare for the unexpected weather event with a flood insurance policy.

YOU need flood insurance. Yes, you. Whether you live on the water, downtown, in the ‘burbs, or down a country road, your home is at risk of flooding. Even renters benefit from a “contents only” policy to protect their belongings.

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Paulette, located over the central tropical Atlantic - www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Paulette - and on Tropical Storm Rene, located over the eastern tropical Atlantic - www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Rene

Elsewhere, we're watching several areas on this Thursday evening for potential development. One is a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms extending from near the Central and Northwest Bahamas eastward over the
western Atlantic for a few hundred miles, associated with a surface trough of low pressure. This system is forecast to move westward, crossing the Bahamas and Florida on Friday and moving into the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend. Upper-level winds are expected to become conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form while this system moves slowly west-northwestward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. Regardless of development, this system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of South Florida and the Keys during the next couple of days. It has a medium (50 percent) chance of formation during the next five days.

Another trough of low pressure is located over the north-central Gulf of Mexico. Although the associated shower and thunderstorm activity has diminished since earlier today, some slow development of this system is possible while it moves westward and then southwestward over the northern and western Gulf of Mexico through early next week. It has a low (20 percent) chance of formation during the next five days.

A tropical wave is located a few hundred miles southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands and is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Gradual development of this system is forecast, and a tropical depression is expected to form within the next few days while the system moves generally westward across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic. It has a high (90 percent) chance of formation during the next five days.

Another tropical wave is forecast to emerge off the west coast of Africa this weekend. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form over the far eastern tropical Atlantic early next week while the system moves slowly westward. It has a medium (40 percent) chance of formation during the next five days. www.hurricanes.gov

Anywhere it can rain, it can flood.

This is not a plug from a particular company to sell flood insurance policies. It is a regional outreach campaign spearheaded by the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission to encourage area residents to purchase flood insurance to protect themselves as our flood risks continue to grow.

Why do you need flood insurance?

Sure, many homes and families in Hampton Roads have yet to experience flooding. If you haven’t had water where it’s not supposed to be, you’ve been lucky. But times, as they say, are a’changin. And the facts are the facts.

FACT Floods are the most common natural hazards.
