West Virginia home insurance protection
You need homeowners insurance to protect against West Virginia's rugged terrain and weather. Though "mountaineers are always free," mountain life also is difficult. West Virginia is one of the cloudiest states in the nation, and prone to thunderstorms, hail, wind, and floods.
Remember that snow melts or flash floods can occur and swiftly carry your home and its contents away. Standard West Virginia homeowners insurance excludes flood damage from protection. If you live in or near a flood zone, consider purchasing a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.
