FLash floods / Flood Damage / Fort Lauderdale Storm

Residential flooding risk elevated as heavy rain in South Florida continues prompting State of Emergency.

The National Weather Service reported that Flash flooding is expected to occur in South Florida due to a relentless string of storms. 

The Governor of Florida declared a State of Emergency, prompting the need for emergency aid throughout the state. 

“We’ve already seen plenty of flooding, and this year looks like a repeat of the last one” ~ said one Fort Lauderdale Resident. This comment refers back to the April Flood of 2023 that affected Fort Lauderdale and other South Florida cities.

7 million people on June 13, 2024, were under a flood watch or warning.

Days of rainfall are expected to continue hammering South Florida as a powerful string of storms is still on a direct path to continue soaking the area.

Can a Florida public adjuster help me with a flood damage claim? 

A public adjuster can help you in several ways with your flood damage claim as long as you have flood insurance. 

Most homeowners believe their homeowners insurance policy provides them with all the coverage and protection they need. However, most homeowners insurance policies do not provide coverage for flood damage. They do provide water damage coverage, but water damage is not flood damage, which tends to be part of the reason for the confusion.

If you have flood insurance and want to be compensated by your insurance company, working with a public adjuster can help your claim process move faster. Your public adjuster will deal with the insurance company on your behalf, fighting to deliver the highest possible payout while avoiding common tactics insurance companies use to delay or underpay homeowners for valid damage claims.
