Get Flood Insurance

Even properties located outside of the floodplain should be insured for flood.

Terrebonne Parish participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), so flood insurance is available to everyone.

Important things to remember:

  • Homeowners insurance does NOT cover flooding.
  • Don't wait! There is a 30-day waiting period before a flood policy takes effect.
  • Standard flood policies do NOT cover contents – make sure your policy does.
  • If you live outside the Special Flood Hazard Area, you may be eligible for a Preferred Risk Policy at a lower cost.

Contact a flood insurance agent to ask about flood insurance today!
