ND Insurance Commissioner Advises People to Know Their Flood Risk| 3/15/2013
“I encourage everyone to learn about the risks of living in a flood plain and how they can protect their property,” Hamm said. “Property owners in high risk areas may want to consider purchasing flood insurance.”
Hamm says that flood insurance is offered and underwritten by the National Flood Insurance Program and that several insurance companies in North Dakota write and service flood policies through the NFIP. The policies kick in 30 days after purchase.
