Flooding: What Does It Mean For Lexington and Thomasville?

9/3/2019 (Permalink)

A broken coupling in a fire suppression system caused this damage.

When you think of flooding what do you envision?    Is it the image of coastal flooding after a hurricane? Or is it rivers breaching their banks after heavy rains upstream?  The reality is you can experience flooding in your home even if you don’t live on the coast or a flood plain. There are many possible natural causes of flooding such as:

  • Heavy Rain
  • Melting Snow
  • Flash Floods
  • Hurricanes, Tropical Storms,
  • Land Development
  • Broken Dam.  

Flooding is the No. 1 natural disaster in the United States

Man Made disasters can be equally destructive. According to the Insurance Information Institute between 2013-2017 water damage and freezing is the second most frequently filed insurance claim. These types of events include:

  • Frozen Pipes
  • Broken Supply lines on Washing machines, dishwashers, ice makers, sinks and toilets
  • Burst water heater tanks
  • Air conditioner leaks
  • Overflowing toilets, sinks, or tubs
  • Backups in a sewer system
