After Wildfires, Your Flood Risks Goes Up (English)

After a wildfire it’s hard to imagine another
risk ahead, but it’s important to remember that communities in and around the impacted
areas face a higher risk of flash flooding and mudflows because fire chars the ground
to the point where it can’t absorb water for years. So when the rainy season comes, even a small
amount of water can cause major damage. But flood insurance can help. A policy from the National Flood Insurance
Program can cover your home and belongings damaged by mudflows and flash floods, so you
can recover quickly and get back to more important things. To learn more contact your insurance agent
