Flood insurance is an important consideration when buying property in or around the floodplain. A person should be aware of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which provides flood insurance coverage for structures and their contents. Go to www.floodsmart.gov to learn how to purchase flood insurance. Flood insurance is mandatory for buildings in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).
