Flood Insurance


A flood is defined as a general and temporary condition where two or more acres of normally dry land or two or more properties are inundated by water or mud flow.  The unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source on the two acres of normally dry land or two or more properties could also be considered a flood.
