Severe weather is in the forecast for our area starting tomorrow, January 9, and going into Wednesday morning. We could see heavy rain leading to localized flooding, as well as high winds. If you still have holiday decorations out, make sure they’re secure. Now is a great time of year to check on your insurance coverage. Remember that most homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage – you need to get a separate flood insurance policy for that coverage. Visit FloodSmart.gov or contact your local insurance agent for more information.
