Crazy Weather gets me wondering about Flood insurance

So, Those of us who live in Beaukiss have seen the low water crossing flood, not once in a week but three times during the daylight hours.  This all being said, started getting me thinking about flood insurance.    Is my home in a flood plain?   If it isn’t should I go ahead by get flood insurance?

Hear is the scoop, if your home isn’t in the 1% annual flood plain, flood insurance is cheap (less than $100 a year).   And if anything does happen to your home because of one of these tributaries getting clogged up, or massive gully washers,  then your covered.    The other nice thing about the map is it tells you where the high land is.   Always find an exit from your home to high ground.     Google topographical maps also is useful for this.

Of course, when the low water crossing is flooded… Turn around, don’t risk drowning.
