Flood Insurance Coverage Helps You Stay Prepared for the Worst

Most homeowners insurance policies, including those offered by State Farm®, do not cover flood damage. If your community participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), however, you can buy flood insurance coverage directly from the federal government through the National Flood Insurance Program.

Federal Flood Insurance Coverage

Most flood insurance is written through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

A flood insurance policy normally takes 30 days from the date of purchase to go into effect. So don't wait until a flood is imminent to buy a policy.

The National Flood Insurance Program is only available in the United States.

Automobile/Recreational Vehicle Coverage

If you carry optional comprehensive coverage on your automobile policy, or if you carry optional physical damage coverage on your recreational vehicle policy, then the direct, sudden damage to your vehicle resulting from a flood would be covered under the terms of most policies.
