Flood Awareness Week

The Texas Governor has proclaimed May 22-26, 2023 "Flood Awareness Week." 

Flooding causes billions of dollars in property damage and numerous deaths each year in the United States. However, many people are unaware that losses due to flooding are not covered under most homeowners, renters, or business insurance policies.

Two-part Key Fundamentals of Flood Insurance Webinar

This webinar is a two-part course on FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program. It brings participants the latest information on the NFIP, including instruction on the NFIP’s pricing methodology – Risk Rating 2.0: Equity in Action. Created for insurance agents with CE varying by state, others are welcome to attend, but CE credit is not available. Attendees must complete both sessions in order to cover all topics required by the Flood Insurance Reform Act (FIRA) of 2004.

Flood risk and flood loss data can help potential property owners make informed decisions and help current property owners consider potential mitigation actions. However, flood disclosure varies from state to state and often is not easily or publicly accessible. Hear about two projects changing the face of disclosure: TX Buyers Be-Where, from Texas A&M University, and HazardAware, a project supported by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Gulf Research Program.
