What is a flood?

Flooding is defined as a general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of two or more acres of normally dry land area or of two or more properties from the following:

• Overflow of inland or tidal waters

• Unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source

• Mudflows

• Collapse or subsidence of land along the shore of a lake or other body of water, as a result of erosion or undermining caused by waves or currents of water exceeding anticipated cyclical levels that result in a flood

What does a Flood Policy cover?
