Based on what Texas Flood Insurance has learned over the years, we know that floods can happen anywhere in the Lone Star State.

Having flood insurance means you’re covered if groundwater rises and floods your home – something that isn’t usually covered by your general home insurance policy. Just imagine a few inches of floodwater in your home. That’s more than enough to destroy floors, walls and cause other damages – costing you thousands if you don’t have flood insurance.
