Flood Insurance

According to several studies, the risk or catastrophic flooding is greater in Sacramento than any other major city in the countryStandard homeowners insurance policies do not cover flooding - a separate flood policy is required.


Sacramento area flood maps indicate that nearly 25% of Sacramento falls within a special flood hazard area (SFHA). Special flood hazard areas lie within a 100 year flood plain, meaning these homes have at least a 1 in 100 chance of severe flooding each year.


You can protect your home, business and belongings with flood insurance.


  • Building coverage up to $250,000
  • Contents coverage is separate, so renters can get flood insurance - up to $100,000 contents coverage is available for homeowners and renters. Contents are not automatically covered with building coverage.
  • Up to $1 million of flood insurance coverage is available for non-residential buildings and contents
  • There is a 30-day waiting period before the coverage goes into effect - Plan ahead so you're not caught without flood insurance when a flood threatens your home or business.
  • Federal disaster assistance is not the answer - it is only available if the President declares a disaster. Flood insurance pays even if a disaster is not declared.


While reducing the risk of flooding may not be easy to achieve, being prepared with a well-constructed flood insurance policy isn't difficult. Don't wait until it's too late.
