California Flood Awareness and Preparedness

Are you prepared for the next “Big One” in California?

You never know when a flood will occur or how much damage it will cause. Experts recently determined that the likelihood of a devastating megaflood in California is significantly higher than previously expected, and suggested that it could be the most costly natural disaster in history. At Palomar, we make it easy to obtain residential or commercial flood insurance tailored to you and your property. That way, you’re always financially protected against floods.

California Flood Information You Should Consider

  • Every California county has been declared a flood disaster area at least twice and will likely experience flooding again.
  • More than $580 billion worth of structures in California are vulnerable to floods.
  • Climate change has doubled the risk of catastrophic flooding in California.
