Even though a home is not in a "high-risk" zone, you can still experience a flood. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), even if you live in an area with low to moderate flood risk, you are five times more likely to experience a flood than a fire in your home.
It's important to note that most homeowner insurance policies do not cover flood damage, however you cab purchase a separate flood policy to ensure you are protected.
