Floods, big or small, can have devastating effects on communities, homes and families. In 2014, major flooding resulted in more than $351 million in claim payouts through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The average 2014 NFIP claim was $29,033, according to Insurance Information Insitute (I.I.I.) data gathered from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
