Is your home fully covered in North Carolina?
Residents of North Carolina get to enjoy some of the country's most beautiful scenery, from the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains to the lighthouses that scatter the Outer Banks. But even North Carolina can fall victim to some severe weather. Hurricanes occasionally wreak havoc on the Carolina coast – the Outer Banks suffer frequent damage – and many NC residents still remember the destruction of Hurricane Hugo back in 1989, which brought down more than 80,000 trees in Charlotte.
If one of those trees falls on your house, you'll want to be sure it's protected. Luckily, standard North Carolina homeowners insurance policies typically offer wind coverage. However, standard policies don't include flood coverage so if the waters start rising you could be in trouble. If you live near the coast or in a flood plain, you should purchase a flood insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program. You can check here to see if you community lies in a flood hazard zone.
Whether you’re in Raleigh-Durham or Greensboro, as a North Carolina homeowner, you should review your current policy and see what perils are covered and which are not. An adjustment in coverage may be necessary to keep your lovely home fully protected.
