Water, water everywhere. It’s a homeowner’s nightmare. In fact, as little as one inch of water in a home can cause up to $25,000 in damage. An even bigger nightmare? Finding out your homeowner’s policy doesn’t insurance against flood. Spoiler alert: most don’t.
We don’t hear a lot about earthquakes here in North Carolina. Or at least we didn’t use to hear about them. But on August 9, 2020 a 5.1 magnitude earthquake sent tremors throughout the state, along with a lot of questions along the lines of “Did you feel that?”
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that you never know what’s coming next.
For example, in August, one week in North Carolina started with a hurricane and ended with an earthquake. Guess what’s not included in standard homeowner’s insurance coverage? Damage from flooding and…earthquakes.
