Be prepared for floods


Flood season is upon us, and it's important that you are ready in case your home is damaged.

The Indiana Department of Insurance is reminding homeowners to purchase flood insurance as soon as possible. Many policies do not cover flood damage, and a flood insurance policy typically will not go into effect until thirty days after you purchase it.

It's also a good idea to keep an inventory of everything in your home. There's an app to help you do that.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners' "My Home Scrapbook" app allows you to quickly and easily store pictures, descriptions, serial numbers, and other information about your belongings. The free app is available for iPhone and Android devices. That link will also allow you to download a home inventory checklist if you prefer to do it that way.
