What to do after reporting?
a) Take photos of your damaged home and belongings.
b) Make a list of damaged or lost items.
c) If you have insurance, you must file a claim with your insurance company.
Flood insurance covers damage due to overland flow affecting two or more properties. This includes damage to utilities in the basement. A homeowner’s policy will not cover losses due to flooding
d) Begin clean up. After taking photos, you should immediately throw away flooded items that pose a health risk, such as perishable food items, clothing, cushions, and pillows.
